    102 - 5-Minute English: Toddlers

    102 - 5-Minute English: Toddlers

    The term "toddler" is typically used to describe a child that is between the ages of one and three, although some people consider a three-year-old up until four, also a toddler. It's the stage in a human's life when they're no longer a newborn, they're no longer an infant, so a baby, but they're also not really a kid.
    The term toddler comes from the verb toddle, which means to walk with short and unsteady steps, according to Oxford Languages. For most of us, when we learn to walk well, we no longer toddle. We actually don't use the term toddle very often in English, although it does exist. 
    There is much to be said about toddlers, and that's why today's 5-minute English lesson will be about this stage of development in a human's life.

    After 5 years of teaching intermediate to advanced level English online, I found trends in the words that my students mispronounced.

    The American English Accent Course

    Nobody needs to change their accent; it's a personal decision! If your accent bugs you - if it screws with your confidence, makes it difficult to be understood, or is the reason why natives speak slower to you - I've made a course to help you out.

    The American English Accent course teaches the foundations and structure of a good accent. From word and syllable stress, to linking, glottal stops, reductions and minimal pairs, you'll be taught exactly how to mimic the sounds of native speakers.

    Access the course here.
