This is something that I did not learn when I was small – that is how to pronounce the words. I am learning more from a prepared audio tape and so far it is going well with other children.
When I explain how to pronounce the words with saying “aaa-aaa” before saying alligator, the children in my class are able to pick these words quite fast. Thinking that I have conquered the hard part, I decided to experience this on my son and to my disappointment, it did not work. Instead of saying “aaa-aaa”, my son said “eee-eee”, with him and my husband laughing.
It is either too advance for him or he is just joking.
