Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 17 October 2021

No matter what difficulties there are, the child acquires the language he was born into well. He does this without a teacher; no teacher will ever tell an English child that the adjective must precede the noun or an Italian child that the adjective must come after the noun. Yet, they both understand the correct construction.

Maria Montessori, The 1946 London Lectures, p. 63
