Have you got a baby, or are you thinking of having one? Reza and I don’t have babies, but not knowing anything about a subject has never stopped us speaking about it before! So, in response to a listener question, here’s an episode about baby vocabulary.

Email from Rónald Espinoza Mora from Costa Rica.
Hi, hello guys. Nearly six months ago I know about yours podcasts when looking for post casts in iTunes came across I find one episode.
(I came across your podcast nearly six months ago when I was looking in itunes.)
Since this day I listened all your new episodes, some old episodes (you really have many posts casts since 2010)
(I’ve been listening to your podcasts since 2010 – http://www.inglespodcast.com/18 – present perfect)
Let me tell my story and motivation for to learn (to learn) and to improve my English: I’m 43 years old, I’m a software engineer, I know many (a lot of) vocabulary and understand more or less the articles in English, but to talk (talking) and to tell my speak in the right way (expressing myself) in grammar and time is very hard for my (me).
I have a daughter, Miranda, she is 11 months old. When she did born (was born) I decided to only talk with she (her) in English and my wife will only talk Spanish with her, we’ll hope when she’ll 3 o 4 year old she’ll bilingual (she’ll be bilingual). This is my motivation to learn English.
Now she knows the basic colors in both languages, too she know (She also knows) the basic questions like what’s your favorite color, what does the cow say, ….. or how many years old you’ll be (on may 9). She can point to some things like a fridge, a big picture, the windows or the door, etc. I only to sing, to watch and to dance videos or song in English with she (her).
In some episodes I find some advice about this topic, even your recommendation to English4Families’s website, that’s good, I really appreciate it, but I think is not enough for my (me). Can you make a special episode about vocabulary of babies 6 months to 24 months.
