Scientists: Children remember their mother tongue in the womb
Children learn their native language immediately after their birth. Such conclusions were made by an international group of scientists from the University of Nijmegen, Western University of Sydney and the University of Hanyang.
The researchers conducted an experiment with the participation of 59 children, some of whom were born in Korea, but were adopted, and the second – in Holland. It was established that the indigenous Dutch had a much better command of the language than the adopted children.
According to scientists, this is due to the fact that children hear sounds, even when they were not yet born. In practice, there are cases when a child remembers a melody or a book that he could never see or hear "live", but his mother did it during pregnancy.
Thus, scientists advise as much as possible to communicate with the baby during gestation, because he hears and understands everything.
