My oldest daughter introduced me to this video, and it was the right moment. Because I saw how my youngest daughter communicated perfectly to Chinese children, who were talking to her in Chinese while she was talking to them in English.
So, I totally agree with Dr. James Asher because I thought: “How can they understand each other if my daughter does not speak Chinese and the other kids don’t speak English? , so I think this video, which shows Dr. Asher’s theory….probably has the answer…..who knows, think about it….I would like to know your opinion
