Bilingual Babies with WBOC’s Brittany Cooper – Wednesday, April 29, 2015
Brittany says that some parents are teaching their kids a second language as they are learning their first. Dr. Claire Kew, Modern Language Chair at Salisbury University, says that when you are born you have the ability to hear all sounds and all languages and then your brain specializes when you get older, and you lose that ability. Dr. Claire says that is why the younger you start teaching your child a second language, the more effective it is.
Brittany says some families learn a new language together and make it a group effort.
