A baby begins learning to talk at birth. When immersed in a "surround sound" world of meaningful talk, a baby soaks in language and vocabulary. If everything goes well, at about 1 year of age the baby begins to talk! How does a baby do these remarkable things? If you want to learn about this extraordinary process, you are in the right place!
