Need Something To Do Monday?



It's never too early to get your Spanish on. In fact, linguists—subscribing to the critical period hypothesis—suggest that the part of a child's brain responsible for language acquisition fuses shut after roughly age of 12. In short, the window in which your child may learn Spanish may be closing.

That's why there's Canciones y Cuentos en Espanol para ninos at the main branch of the Boise Public Library in downtown Boise. It's an opportunity for Spanish-speaking children to hear stories in their own language, and for English-speaking children to spend some time getting used to a language that's not their own.
