The linguistic genius of babies

Hey, everyone! How are you?

Patricia Kuhl shares astonishing findings about how babies learn one language over another — by listening to the humans around them and “taking statistics” on the sounds they need to know. Clever lab experiments show how 6-month-old babies use sophisticated reasoning to understand their world. It’s unbelievable!!!

“What have we learned? Well, babies all over the world are what I like to describe as ‘citizens of the world.’ They can discriminate all the sounds of all languages, no matter what country we’re testing and what language we’re using, and that’s remarkable because you and I can’t do that.”
