Research is an art; children make for the most challenging and rewarding masterpieces. All of the researchers in these following clips have something in common: they are utterly passionate about what they do and they always ask an old question in a new way. One perspective is never enough and things that may seem like common sense to you and me are just unexplained phenomena to them. The subject I’d like to focus on this semester is bilingualism in children. Patricia Kuhl at the University of Washington is a pioneer in development baby bilingualism theories that are universally accepted today. Should any one of these videos be the most influential to me, hers is the one. (See second to last video)
