Penn Science Café: “How Children Learn Language and Why They’re Better at It Than Adults”


Jun 11, 2019
06:00 PM until 07:00 PM


It’s no secret that children excel at learning languages. Every typically developing child acquires language with little special effort or adult help. Why are they so good at this? It is something about how they learn or how their brain is organized? And how do they navigate the complex world of grammar and syntax? In the Child Language Lab at Penn, Kathryn Schuler has been grappling with such questions, and she’ll discuss what she’s learned so far.


The talk is part of the Penn Science Café, a free public lecture series presented by Penn Arts and Sciences and the Office of University Communications that sheds light on faculty research in the arts and sciences. The presentation will be followed by an audience Q&A. Café events are free and open to the public. Food and beverages will be available for purchase before, during, and after the talk. RSVPs are encouraged due to limited seating. For more information or directions, call or email Julian Shendelman at 215-898-8721 or
