Soon babies will bawl in French. Or perhaps they will bawl in Raag Malhar.
The Washington Post had this recent article about women giving “audio lessons” to their babies so they could recognize patterns and sounds. I’m sorry, did I say babies? I meant fetuses.
That’s right, so now you have devices that can teach your unborn baby. The curriculum seems to involve “sound recognition”, although I’m not sure what that means. Do the women tell their fetuses “kick twice if you think this is Mozart’s 25th Symphony” ?
Apparently, fetuses can start hearing at 18 weeks. So they have about 22 weeks to get a crash course in music or French, or high-sounding corporate jargon (you think that’ll be most useful, right?).
The ultimate record holder in this category continues to be Abhimanyu, but you can see he will soon have competition.
