Language teaching and teachers in the primary classes often ignore the fact that the child in the class is an extremely capable being. A child of four is a linguistic adult in the sense that she is able to communicate, conceptualise and reason in her own language. The child of four can do many other things as well including physical tasks, competently using spatial relations and transformations; visualising, estimating and having a sense of number and quantity. She has acquired all this through a natural engagement with the world around her.
