Creating bilingual minds | Naja Ferjan Ramirez | TEDxLjubljana


Dr. Naja Ferjan Ramirez is a researcher studying the brain processing of language in infants and young children. In her talk, she showcases the latest techniques to study the infant brain and explains why all babies have the full potential to learn two languages at the same time. She discusses the benefits of bilingual environments for language and brain development and describes what it takes to create bilingual minds.

Dela na Inštitutu za učenje in možganske znanosti univerze Washington v Seattlu. Na univerzo Brown v Združenih državah, kjer je doštudirala nevroznanost, so jo v rani mladosti pripeljali odlični športni rezultati v teku na 400 in 800 m z ovirami. Doktorirala je iz lingvistike in kognitivnih znanosti na univerzi v Kaliforniji, v San Diegu. Kasneje jo je pot ponesla v Seattle. Tam danes dela in živi s svojo družino, v kateri se uspešno sporazumevajo v kar treh jezikih - slovenskem, španskem in agleškem. Trenutno raziskuje, kako elastični in dojemljivi za učenje tujega jezika so možgani otrok od rojstva do tretjega leta starosti. Najzanimivejše ugotovitve s tega področja bo 4. decembra v Cankarjevem domu delila z nami.

I have friends with whom I speak in complete Spanglish. We code mix so much, even from word to word sometimes. At times, it's just easier, or cooler to say things in one language than in another... Or sometimes the idea is better explained or more precise in one language, or the word unexistent in the other. That being said, un saludo to all those que hablan español y que estan seeing this video. Saludos from Panama :)



English is my second language. I highly doubted I could understand at least something without subtitles. But it turned out this video didn't have subtitles so I had to watch it without them. And I understood everything that nice researcher said. Didn't expect. It probably means my English is not bad. I'm confident it is.
