How ‘Knowing Less’ Can Boost Language Development in Children
[Source: Medical X-Press]
Children may learn new words better when they learn them in the context of other words they are just learning—according to new research from the University of East Anglia.
Researchers investigated how 18-24-month-olds learn new words—in the context of words they already know well and those they don’t.
The findings help explain how children learn new words and suggest a new way that parents and carers could help boost language development.
