Teaching our kids to talk can be one of the biggest challenges of having a toddler,  and those who can teach their kids not one but two languages are on another level. There's no doubt that being bilingual is a huge asset to anyone as they grow up, and the best time to learn a second language is when they're young and their brains are like little sponges, soaking up language practically 24 hours a day.

Then, there's this mom on TikTok, who is teaching her daughter how to count in French. That's impressive enough, but when showing off her skills in a video, this mom got a surprise when they reached the number "four." This is so cute — everyone needs to see it! 


At first, everything is going well, and this adorable little girl is dutifully repeating each number in French after her mother. But then, her mom says four — which, in French, sounds like the word "cat" — and instead of repeating it, well... you definitely need to see the video to get the full effect of what happens! 

But honestly, at a time in our kids' development when we're so big on teaching them animal sounds, should we really be surprised that this was her response? LOL!

This little lady is going places. Knowing English, French, and what sound a cat makes? Truly amazing.
