What are the appropriate ways to teach a child the correct pronunciation?

Teaching the child the correct pronunciation:

You can teach your child proper pronunciation, through a set of steps:

  • Sing to your baby, and you can do it even before he's born, your baby will hear you.
  • Talk to your child, and talk to others near him.
  • Set aside quiet time to talk and play quietly with your baby without the TV, radio or other noises.
  • Hold your baby close so he can look you in the eye, talk to him and smile.
  • When your baby babbles, imitate his sounds.
  • If he tries to make the same sound you make, say the word again.
  • Give your child a toy and say something about it, such as, "Hold it and say hello."
  • Let your child see himself in the mirror and ask him, "Who is this?" If not, say his name.
  • Ask your child questions, such as, "Where is the door?" If not, show him where.
  • Wave your hand in front of him and say "hello" or "goodbye" to connect them.
  • Ask your child questions about the pictures in the books.
  • Smile or clap your hands when your child correctly names the things he sees.
  • Talk a lot about what your child wants to talk about most.
  • Hide the things your child wants, help him find them and repeat their name during the search.
