Today’s “Brain Quiz” statement is:
“Babies are born with the ability to
learn all the languages in the world.”
– Not sure?
Here are some ways to make learning language easier for baby:
- Talk more slowly, raise the pitch of your voice and exaggerate the accent on words. This makes it easier for babies to hear language and recognize the patterns of words.
- Repeat words and phrases. Repetition helps babies learn to understand speech and strengthens the language connections in the brain.
- Play language games with baby by repeating what baby says and add a new sound. Taking turns talking with baby is one of the best ways to experience language.
- The more talking, singing and reading that a baby hears, the more words she will understand and use.
