Language Barrier

Klara and I are experiencing a language barrier. She loves it when I use flash cards and pictures to teach her new words. There was one word, though, that she wasn’t managing to learn, “horse.” This was strange because she’s usually great with the words that start with “h.” 

Whenever I showed her a picture of a horse, she’d say “neigh neigh.” 

“No, it’s a horse,” I’d correct her but she kept repeating her neigh neigh. 

It took me a while to discover that in English the sound a horse makes is “neigh neigh.”
