Research shows that people still can remember the language they heard during first six months of birth

Researchers have found out that babies can remember the language they have heard at the time of their birth even if they are taught a different language during the later stage of their life. Scientists found that the language learning is subconsciously locked in first six months after birth and this makes them learn the language later on in their life very quickly and more precisely pronounce the language.

Scientists said that people will never forget the language they have learned during their first six months and this will be a good news for who have adopted other language and want to reconnect with their mother tongue.



Previous studies have also found out that babies learn the language patterns in the womb itself and at the very start of their life. Scientists call this as the abstract language which is retained about the birth language.


To figure out this, Scientists have chosen 29 Korean-born Dutch-speakers and 29 native Dutch speakers and asked them to reproduce three Korean consonants over a two week period of time. The native Korean speakers are found to quickly learn and pronounce the three Korean consonants than do the native Dutch speakers.

The way young babies pick up and learn languages is very interesting, but it's also difficult to study – getting a panel of babies together to talk about their experiences isn't really an easy option. 

In that research, the brain activity of volunteers showed traces of recognizing their first language, even if it was not practiced anymore in their life.
