Babies are born with the potential to speak any language!

At just six months old, infants are capable of distinguishing sounds from any language. By 12 months old, children have already started to focus on the sounds of their primary language and by two and three years old, have begun to recognize speech patterns.

The earlier a language is introduced, the easier a child can identify its unique sounds. The ability to identify phonetic pronunciations is most acute before age three and begins to diminish the older we get. A child’s brain is developmentally prepared to learn language at this early age and prompt exposure can improve fluency and minimize or even eliminate speaking with an accent.
