Welcome to the Infant Language and Learning Lab! You have probably noticed that your baby loves language - he or she likes to hear you talk and is beginning to make lots of interesting sounds. Your baby may even understand a few words by now! Have you ever wondered how this amazing process works? In the first few years of life, infants learn at an amazing rate. We try to understand how these babies are able to learn so much and so quickly. In particular, we focus on how infants learn to communicate by seeing what they can learn about language and music. Here at the Infant Language and Learning Lab at Carnegie Mellon University, we share your excitement about your child's language learning.
