Research by scientists based at King's College London and Brown University, Rhode Island, suggests that immersing children in a bilingual environment before the age of four gives them the best chance of becoming fluent in both languages. They studied 108 children with normal brain development between the ages of one and six.

由伦敦国王学院和美国罗德岛布朗大学科学家所做的研究表明,让四岁以下儿童沉浸在双语环境中能给他们提供流利掌握两种语言的最佳条件。他们是在研究了108名大脑正常发育的1 至6岁的儿童之后得出上述结论的。


短语 child's play 用来形容非常容易做的一件事,小菜一碟,易如反掌。


I finished the test very quickly. It was child's play!

Stop trying to fix the car and call a professional mechanic to do the job. This is not child's play.


另一个短语 a poster child 意思是一个典范人物。

Mr Cancino went from a poor young immigrant to a powerful businessman in a decade. He is a poster boy for the 'American Dream'.
