Other cultures, other languages

Cultures vary enormously in how children are brought up and what expectations there are for learning and behaviour. Children also have to crack into the language they hear around them and these languages can be wildly different from English. Come and hear what's the same across the world and what's different in terms of child-rearing and language learning.

This talk was filmed at our Kids Say the Funniest Things event at the Manchester Museum in November 2015. The talk is aimed at parents, caregivers, early years practitioners and anyone else with an interest in how children learn to communicate.
