There are so many funny moments these days with Zosia’s language that I forget to note them down but I’ve just this minute finished the bedtime routine and I managed to retain this for the 30 seconds required to get here and type.
We are currently working our way through the Disney Picture Dictionary. I know, not as much fun as Horrid Henry stories but she really enjoys these dictionaries and it is good to be teaching something at the same time as entertaining. The book is full of colourful characters like these guys from Monsters Inc.
We were on the letter ‘C’ and looking at a picture of Sulley (above) holding a large camera to take a photo, the word to guess was of course – “camera”. I asked her what she thought this word was and she answered “aparat”, which a commonly used Polish word for camera – aparat fotograficzny to be precise. She knows perfectly well what the word is in English because she sees me using one all the time and she’s asking for one for Christmas.
I ask her what the word is in English.
She answers – “motor bike”.
We both laugh a lot.
