Understanding words and sentences used by others and creatively using words and sentences to express our thoughts, ideas and emotions is what makes us distinctly human. Language is a complex system that allows us to use sounds, words, and sentences to interact with others in meaningful ways. It involves both comprehension and expression. Children’s language skills develop through playful, interactive experiences, abundant and motivating opportunities for speaking and listening, and regular experiences with books. The development of language skills provides the foundation for social awareness and academic learning and is critical to later literacy development.
