Erika Hoff: How language experience shapes language development and explains effects of bilingualism and socioeconomic status

Time: 
Monday, March 02, 2015 - 11:00 AM
Location: 
Lefrak 1124

Abstract: Studies of language input and language development in monolingual and bilingual populations reveal how children use input to learn language, and thus they reveal what children need from input in order to learn language. Findings have implications for understanding individual and between-group differences in children’s language skill and for designing interventions and policy aimed at closing language gaps.

Erika Hoff is a professor of Psychology at Florida Atlantic University.

This talk is jointly sponsored by HESP and the Language Science Center.
