I-LABS Module 6 – Language Development: Learning the Sounds of Language (eLearning)
All children deserve the best start in life and new scientific discoveries deepen our understanding of how to create the best environments for children. The team at I-LABS creates new and effective ways to bridge the gap between the science and the practice of learning by disseminating the latest science of child development. Our team shares the latest scientific discoveries in relevant and actionable ways with those who can best put it into practice: early learning professionals, parents, and policymakers. Partners use cutting-edge research to create evidence-based policies, practices, and programs that grow the next generation of lifelong learners.
This 25-minute Online module covers the following points:
- Language learning begins before birth. A young brain is particularly ready to learn language.
- When listening to language, infants engage in statistical learning. This helps them become sensitive to the specific sounds of their native language.
- Face-to-face interactions are critical for language learning. In the first year of life, social interactions expose children to language. They also prepare the infant brain for speaking.
