Being exposed to language at a young age has an enormous effect on early literacy development. Young children who engage in frequent conversations develop better vocabulary, language, and reading comprehension skills than those who don’t. Interactive conversations with adults also help students build background knowledge, which further increases comprehension ability by enabling them to make sense of new ideas.
