Speed Reading — Baby Talk - Level 0 — 300 wpm 

Now do this put-the-text-back-together activity.

This is the text (if you need help).

Mothers across the world speak to babies in the same way. Researchers said "motherese" is a world language. The cute noises and coochy-coos mothers say are very complex. Motherese helps babies learn language. Baby talk is more important than we thought. A researcher said baby talk is not embarrassing.

The researchers recorded 24 different mothers speaking 10 languages. The mothers played with and read to their babies. Their babies were between seven months and one year. The mothers' voices changed in the same way, in any language. The study said fathers probably also speak to their babies in a similar way.
