Patricia Kuhl describes a baby's brain as being enormously open to new knowledge and forms of learning. It is during the first six to eight months of a baby's life when he or she listens to surrounding sounds, noises and voices and gathers what Kuhl refers to as statistics. These sets of statistics enable babies to discriminate between different languages. Patricia Kuhl shares experiments and lab tests that demonstrate a baby's advanced ability to differentiate between languages such as English and Mandarin.
