    Did you know?

An infant (at 3 months) can distinguish and identify inflections in multiple languages.
By 6 months, the “multilingual” ability is lost and the infant focuses on the sounds and inflections of the primary language.
Also at 6 months, an infant’s voice box drops and that’s when he begins babbling and experimenting with sounds.
He also begins using consonants and responding to certain phrases.
Too bad we don’t retain that multilingual capability!
