My Oldest Grandson James
I never quite understood what kind of Doctor James was going to be or what research he was doing. He is in Grad school at Northwestern, just finishing his first year.His research study that he came up with is to see if bilingual Spanish-English speakers are better than monolingual English speakers at learning words in a third, made up language of his own design.He's had a lot of people respond so he's now busy looking at their data to see how well they learned. I find it fascinating, certainaly a lot deeper than anything I ever studied. Hopefully he will send me the results soon. Hope I didn't bore you all,( it has nothing to do with quilting ) but I think its quite interesting knowing James as I do. He is a very shy, quiet young man, very much the silent type and now he speaks in front of many, many Doctors, Professors etc. Amazing!
