Does it matter how we speak to our children? – Monday 29th April, 7pm

talkingtochildren Last time you spoke to a baby, did you find yourself using funny words like ‘milkie’ and ‘blankie’ in an embarrassingly high-pitched voice?

Profesor Vera Kempe from the University of Aberaty will join us this month to discuss what characterises child-directed speech, who tends to use it, whether it occurs universally across languages and cultures, and – most importantly – how it can facilitate children’s language development.

Join us at the award winning Chambers Coffee House and Restaurant, 34 South Tay Street  on Monday 29th April 2013 at 7pm.

This is a FREE event and EVERYONE IS WELCOME. There is no need to book in advance but arrive early to avoid disappointment.
