Language Aquisition

This video talks about language acquisition. I thought it was interesting because she talked about the nature verses nurture debate in learning and how some believed it is innate and others believe it is learned. She talks about how people who learn English as a second language usually have accents. This is due to the different phonemes present in different languages. However, she talks about how babies can distinguish between any phoneme in any language. Overall, this was very interesting and relates to the topic of language in cognitive psychology.
