A new study from Oxford University suggests that the most effective way to prevent your daughter speaking English will be to limit the amount of time she spends speaking it.
“The study also found that children who spent more time learning how to speak English were less likely to get their parents to talk to them, and were more likely to stop speaking English altogether,” The Independent reports.
The research, which involved over 1,000 children, found that those who spent the least time with their parents were the ones who were most likely to speak to them.
While the findings don’t prove that it’s better to have your daughter speak English than to not have her speak it, they are interesting to see.
It’s important to remember that not speaking to your children is a choice, so there are many factors that go into this.
The study included children who were born in the UK, from either the UK or the US, and the UK study focused on those who were between the ages of four and six.
The US study included those born in China.
There are a lot of factors that influence what kind of language your children speak, so having your child learn a foreign language can make a big difference to your child’s language development.
In the UK studies, children were also asked to speak a different language to their parents.
This led to different findings.
According to the BBC, those who had spoken to their mothers for more than six months were more than twice as likely to be fluent in their foreign language than those who hadn’t.
So while it’s important for parents to keep their children in their language-learning mode, this study shows that it can be a good idea to have a different conversation to your kid every few weeks or so.
Do you have any tips on how to keep your daughter in your language-loving mode?
