Questions are vital in learning English. They are asked at home, at work, at play. Every day and most probably every hour, we ask questions. I wonder how many of these questions we ask, get answers? And how many go unanswered?
Our daughter Lauren is going through the phase of development which involves inundating one's parents with seemingly endless quantities of questions. The two most popular right now are "What is that?" closely followed by "What is it doing?" Yes, at times, it becomes pretty wearisome responding to a plethora of questions, many of them often repeated. It does however, highlight the rapid growth of a young child's intellectual development as they seek to learn absolutely everything that happens around them.
How refreshing it would be if us adults desired to know the reasons and causes of all things too, just as our young ones do.
