2430. How Babies Acquire a Foreign Language



Babies start to speak about one year and half, but since week number eighteen, the baby in mom’s belly can produce sounds. 

After birth babies listen the same to their parents and adults in general a zillion times, and these adults repeat the same word or phrase, and the infant starts to repeat and pronounce those words, or short phrases, not full sentences. 

You, father or mother, can take advantage of this phenomenon to make your children speak in English. 

In general terms, infants and young kids have their brain forming itself, and at that point of time is when those children can acquire a language – adults also can acquire a language though; you can see the label or tag about acquisition and adult learners. / Photo from: mom-and-baby francesiacussi com
