Communicating with the baby is recommended even before birth. The fetus familiarises himself with his mother’s voice and heartbeats because he hears them constantly, but it is recommented that the father also communicates with him, so the baby gets used with his voice as well. After birth, parents should address the baby often, to describe the surroundings and events: ‘I have to change your nappy because it is soiled.’ ‘First, we look for clean clothes, then we take off the dirty ones’ etc. We should avoid overusing baby talk and aim to speak grammatically correct as much as possible. Since, up until the age of three children cannot differentiate between concrete and abstract notions, it is important to read and recall real stories or happenings from their own lives. In language development, it is important that we isolate new words/concepts and, for example, when we help a child change, we say ‘Now we will take off the blouse’. In this context, the word ‘blouse’ is a new word and the parent should emphasise this word by repeating it at least three times. Thus, the child will learn to recognise the word and the concept/object associated with it. ‘bring or show me your blouse’ types of activities can also help sediment concepts and develop language. Later on, the child will repeat the words and use them in different contexts. As far as acquiring a foreign language, it is important we expose children to it around three years old. Constant use of language during this time is very important. For example, a couple of different origins (Romanian mother and arab speaking father) communicate with their child in English. At the age of two, the child learned to communicate with his mother in Romanian, with this dad in Arabic and when he addresses both parents, he speaks English. He adapts his communication to the people with whom is he interacting (maternal or paternal grandparents).
