Babies are all ears to the sounds in their world. When parents speak often to their baby, that baby will learn to repeat those same words back to the parents. If the baby hears more than one language, both of those languages will be familiar to him. In fact, in the first few years of life, a child will learn a second language in the same part of the brain as he or she learns the mother tongue.
A baby's early exposure to language is the key to becoming bilingual. The earlier a child hears the sounds distinctive to each language, the easier it will be for that child to understand and speak more than one language without an accent.
With each language a person can speak, a whole new world of thinking and words is opened up. Is your growing child exposed to more than one language? What a gift to give to your little one!
