How do children learn language?
Happy New Year from all of us at Speech Link Multimedia Ltd!
Over the Christmas break, I came across these two recent BBC Radio 4 talks which are definitely worth a listen.
First Words: How do children develop language?
This talk discusses the complex process of how children learn their first words, and reminds us that the bulk of the language learning process is done in infancy. 15 month old Toby contributes to the discussion showing off his new words!
Speaking, Listening and the English GCSE.
With the removal of Speaking and Listening from the National Curriculum, this talk discusses the challenge of finding a new way to assess these vital skills.
