I'm teaching English to a four-year-old girl.
In the recent lesson, I found an interesting thing.

In the lesson, I was teaching the names of colors.
I asked her "What color is this?", pointing to a red thing.
She answered, "あ~かぁ!".
She said it with an accent like English.

I found it very interesting.
She is a very young child and speaks little English , but she understands what English accents are like.

She still says "あ~かぁ、き~ぃろぅ、みど~りぃ" as red, yellow and green, but I think she will be able to speak better soon.^^
