Bilingual babies needed for language study

Is your child growing up learning two or more different languages?

Did you know that more than half of the world is bilingual?

The Liverpool Language Lab are looking for bilingual children, between the ages of 6-9 months and 12-15 months to participate in a one-time study, as part of the Many Babies project.

The project is a global study investigating the different behaviours shown by bilingual and monolingual children. Being bilingual can be a real advantage but we don't actually know that much about how children learn two languages at the same time.

During the study your child will watch a pattern on a computer screen while listening to two different types of speech. They will then be shown some short video clips to measure their gaze following.

If you are interested in taking part and would like more information please email childlng@liv.ac.uk.
