 Hello Aanchal,

Want to know, at what age children can start speaking foreign language(English), currently my son is 3.2 yrs about to complete his nursery. In his school he is expected to tell Hare and Tortoise story in english, he can to tell to me in telugu, and the teacher says he speaks very slowly in low voice. I asked her not to force him. Want to know if am I over expecting from him at that age..

word-vocabulary in English can start from the very beginning.

2-3 words' sentence formation in English may start from 2- 3 years of age.

story telling in English  is perhaps not so easy for a 3 year old one. may be you can teach him the story in 4-5 small sentences.

 Thanks aanchal,

currently I'm telling him the stories in mother tongue first and then reading him loud in English with the book showing him the pictures and associating the pictures with english words.
