Unraveling How Children Become Bilingual
Yahoo! picked up a great article by Associated Press medical author Lauran Leergaard on the widely discussed topic of how children learn languages with such ease. Scientists continue to unravel the neurology behind language learning. This research says that the ideal window for one to become fluent in a second language is between the ages of birth and age seven.
“While new language learning is easiest by age 7, the ability markedly declines after puberty.”
And take note parents:
“Baby brains need personal interaction to soak in a new language — TV or CDs alone don’t work.”
That’s why Little Pim was created in 5-minute episodes. It’s the perfect length for you to stop the DVD and interact with your tot. Play with the new words together. We have several games and coloring pages to share on the website, and new print and music materials are coming soon to make Little Pim the multifaceted language learning resource you’ve always dreamed of!
