Visiting a Zoo

Some of my English students say little children speak a different language, and they don't sound anything like the people in their textbooks. I agree. For that reason, I've added recordings of my children over the year to expose students to this NATURAL speech. In this conversation, my son (at the time, 4 years old) and I were talking about our visit to the zoo. Give it a try:

  1. The difficulties of understanding the children talking are not only for their pronounce of terms but also talk incoherently, as in this test. Indeed, talking with children is somewhat difficult even in native language.
