The Language Acquisition Lab is seeking responsible, highly motivated students with an interest in language and children to assist with our research projects during Summer Session II, and/or Fall 2020. We do experiments on word learning and sentence processing in toddlers, preschoolers, and adults. This summer we need students who are interested in learning about online data collection (via Zoom appointment!). Summer lab work will be online, and does not require you to be in Champaign-Urbana.
