EDUC 58 Language Acquisition and Development

How do infants acquire language so quickly and effortlessly? Why is it relatively difficult to learn a new language as an adult? This course will explore the biological bases that enable language acquisition, as well as the social, familial, and educational factors that contribute to language development from infancy to adolescence and beyond. We will examine both typical and atypical language development, and consider the implications of individual differences and language diversity for educational settings. Open to all classes.

SOC

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
