    Thanks. Actually, I don't want to expose my son to tv yet, but I read about how babies can learn from vcd. But then, I don't want my son to be addicted to tv either.
    At what age can we expose our children to tv? 3 years old? 4?

    andymom,

    The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends no more than one to two hours of quality TV and videos a day for older children and no screen time for children under the age of 2.

    Thanks, hart!
    I just read it. I won't let my son watch tv again (it's a good thing that he doesn't like it, anyway!)

    Jools,

    Do you give private tutoring?

    I have been thinking about it for a while, but haven't got any further than that sorry.

    your son is only 16 months and can actively use 500 words and make short sentences already?! :shock: my daughter is the same age and she can possibly speak 10-15 short words. so if what you've observed is true, then i wouldn't worry about his english abilities! by the time he's ready to attend kindergarten/school, he'll be perfectly fine.
    my daughter is exposed to 4 languages, and hence her english acquisition is delayed. oh well - i'll go to playgroups with her, let her play with other kids and really hope for the best till it's time for a kg interview...

    Agree. Children learn fast, your kid will do just fine once he get into the school.

    If you are truly worried (although you seem to be doing fine), join an English playgroup. I'd recommend Baby Buddies (from Alison's Letterland)... I think there is an ad on this site for it... only because we've had positive experiences with them.
