Despite awesome renovations at Underwater World here at the Sunshine Coast, Master coming-up-2 STILL has only one interest…’man…diving’. Knowing that language-learning occurs best when the child is interested, I worked his receptive vocab! He now knows ‘wetsuit’, ‘regulator’, ‘bootees’, ‘mask’, ‘tank’, ‘breathing’ and ‘weight belt’. (We were staring that long)

I explained ‘regulator’ by putting my hand to my mouth and doing some diving breathing, paired ‘bootees’ with ‘shoes for swimming’ and ‘weight belt’ with ‘stay down..don’t float on top (with hand gestures)’ etc.
And sure enough, he is telling me these words back like I just taught him simpler words like ‘fish’ or ‘swimming’.
He doesn’t know these aren’t everyday words as to him they are of complete interest!!
I then follow this up with ‘you LIKE the man, you LIKE watching the diving’ to help him understand this is his interest.  Heidi
