The babies were shown a video of three women who were bilingual speakers of French and English—languages the babies didn't know. Each woman was shown in turn saying sentences in one of the languages. Eventually, the baby got used to this and got bored. Then the language changed. Monolingual babies took no notice, but bilingual babies started looking at the video again. Other studies have shown that monolingual babies make the distinction until they are 6 months old.

The findings indicate that as babies learn to discriminate the two languages they're familiar with—Spanish and Catalan—they aren't just learning the specific rules of their two mother tongues. They're actually learning something more general about what makes languages different. Monolingual babies lose this skill over time. ... more at

So without further delay, here are 3 things that I’ve learned about speaking Mandarin from my 4 year old!

1. Repeat everything you hear.
Perhaps you’ve been there done that. You might have someone in you life who corrects you constantly. I know I do. But something deep inside of me wants to dismiss the constructive criticism and just ignore the correction and move on. My son does not. I should not. But I’m an adult. I said it differently ok, I said it in a creative way, ok I can say it my own way. It was wrong, sure but I just want to be understood! I don’t have to speak so eloquently! Wrong. I need to learn from what my 4 year old does. ... more at
