ToddleTalk Project

Investigating early German-English bilingualism

ToddleTalk is a research project on early child bilingualism that aims to investigate factors that are important in young bilingual children's development. We focus on two main groups of young bilinguals: children who hear both English and German from birth, and children who only hear English from birth, but will start to learn German after entering a German-speaking daycare centre.

We are very happy to have finished recruiting families for this project and thank everyone who has helped us find families! And of course, a big thank you to all the families who are participating in Germany, Austria and the UK!
