Here is a useful tip for encouraging your child to speak in another language.
Sometimes children can be a little hesitant to speak a language which is not native to them. Well, there are some tricks to help them. For instance you can use hand puppets, teddy bears or dolls. Let them “do the talking”. This makes the children feel more confident since they use another voice – it is not “them” who is speaking.
Even if children happily speak a language bringing in another character is a fun way to stimulate and encourage a conversation.
