Outreach

We are available to talk you your parent group on brain and language development and how growing up bilingual shapes your baby's brain. To arrange for a visit from our team please contact: Nat Ebanks at 01248 388828 or email pspc0f@bangor.ac.uk.

Some of the questions we will talk about include:

    How babies:

         become tuned to their native language(s)

         recognize words and the rhythm of their language(s)

         learn the meanings of words in one or two languages

    If my baby hears two languages, will he/she get confused?
