New research is suggesting that newborn babies’s cries mimic the cadence of their biological mother’s language.

Hmmmm… do French babies really cry differently than German babies? Hmmmm

Barbara has been working for a small liberal arts college in the cornfields of Ohio for about 15 years. In addition to teaching Spanish she runs a somewhat unconventional language center. Prior to this adventure in higher ed she taught high school Spanish and loved it. She wishes she had more time in her life to play with her dogs, write, read, swim, do yoga things and watch the Red Sox. Preferably not all at once, although that could be interesting.
