Light at the end of the tunnel

Hello fellow bloggers

Feeling pretty happy with myself now I have completed Rachel's essay and (fingers crossed) have Fiona's presentation finished tomorrow. That will be two ticked off the list and one to go (Lin's essay!!!)

Haven't had the feedback yet though, so may not be smiling for long. Oh well, can revel in my happiness for a short while ;)

Babies deciphering accents

Thought I would add this link which I saw on BBC online which would compliment the video we saw in Fiona's lecture last week. Researchers have studied the cries of newborn babies born to German and French parents and it is suggested that the cries are imitating the sounds of the parents accents, which seems to emphasise further that babies are developing cognitively whilst in the womb.

Hope this link works. Not sure if I am adding links correctly any advice would be much appreciated!!
