What a great article! I enjoyed reading it too.
This article came from Science News For Kids”The article is newborns are appearing to recognize words they hear before they are born. Fetuses are listening. And they’ll remember what they heard. Studies had shown they can hear songs and learn sounds while in the womb. Now scientists show that fetuses can learn specific words, too. And for at least a few days after they’re born, babies can still recall commonly repeated words.
Please do not use your last name. Change it. Thanks!

I read the article Learning words in the womb by Stephen Ornes. The article talked about a study or experiment that proves babies can learn words through sound patterns before they are born. The study compared babies learning new words to adults learning new words of different languages. Both are done through sound patterns.
