Language learning and language improvement of children

We often see that children initially learn language by imitation but speak in standard language with words from their mother tongue or are unable to speak complete sentences. The teacher is required to make corrections in the sentences or words spoken by the student. Gradually the child learns to speak pure language by improving the words of the language. They can be gradually improved by the teacher by practicing them.
