Lots of children learns how to speak. But how do they do it?
A human being can learn to speak by interacting, such as...
Reading or writing
Mimicking the sounds around them
Listening to their parents narrate their day
(Ex. "Mommy is putting on her big red coat")
Learning simple nursery rhymes, singing along to them
“that early language is promoted by the conversation you have” - Richard Besser
The cortex, located in the brain
The vocal cords and the lungs, sounds are made by air exhaling through the lungs
The voice box, located at the bottom of the throat
Vibrations in the vocal cord, amplified by the voice box
The tongue, lips, and teeth form different sounds.
