  • Not at all!! i taught my daughter a couple and she is 18 months as well. Everyday we do at least 2 new signs becuase she catches on almost immediately!!! One thing that does help is if she has a hard time forming the sign, position her hands and make the action with her hands. I started doing that for my baby and she catches on even quicker to new signs. It's SO much fun too!!!

  • nope. Not too late at all! Start teaching whatever you know right away and she'll catch on quick.

  • It is never too late to teach your child a second language!
