Toddlers (12 - 33 months)
Talking and listening to your toddler since birth is about to pay off in a language explosion.
At age 1, your baby can say at least a few words, and you find many ways to communicate with each other. By age 2, your toddler’s talking is starting to take off, but she can understand more than she can actually say. Between the ages of 2 and 3, your child is ready to learn and use hundreds of words!
For your toddler to learn hundreds of words, you need to continue to talk to her. To really learn words and how language works, your toddler needs lots of conversation in order to practice her words and talking skills. It will take more practice and more time for her to correctly pronounce many words, but you don’t need to correct her. Just pronounce the words correctly when you use them and keep having plenty of conversations so she can practice.
