- Babies as young as four months old can tell whether a speaker has switched languages from visual cues alone, but only those who grow up in a bilingual home seem to hang on to the ability, researchers in British Columbia have found.
In Friday's issue of the journal Science, Whitney Weikum, a doctoral student in neuroscience at the University of British Columbia, and her colleagues report the results of their tests on infants who were shown video clips of bilingual speakers.
The study is the first to show young babies are prepared to tell languages apart using only visual information, Weikum said.
