How Children Learn language - And Why They're Better at It Than Adults
480 South Broad Street, Philadelphia
This event is free and open to the public.
It’s no secret that children are really good at learning languages. Every typically developing child acquires language with no special effort or help from anyone. Why are they so good at it? It is something about how they learn or how their brain is organized? And how do they navigate the complex world of grammar and syntax? These are some of the questions Kathryn Schuler has been grappling with in the Child Language Lab at Penn, and she’ll discuss what she’s learned so far.
