From learning in infancy to planning ahead in adulthood: Sleep's vital role for memory http://ow.ly/vLxiR
Babies and young children make giant developmental leaps all of the time. Sometimes, it seems, even overnight they figure out how to recognize certain shapes or what the word 'no' means no matter who says it. It turns out that making those leaps could be a nap away: New research finds that infants who nap are better able to apply lessons learned to new skills, while preschoolers are better able to retain learned knowledge after napping.

UMass Boston Applied Linguistics Program
Introduction
We are a graduate-only program and provide a highly rigorous M.A. in Applied Linguistics degree with possible concentrations in English as a Second Language, Bilingual Education or Foreign  Language Pedagogy.  Josephine pursued and completed the English as a Second Language concentration 

Our faculty consists of several internationally renowned scholars in the field of Applied Linguistics and our program has played a pioneering role in preparing teachers in the fields of bilingual education, ESL and foreign language pedagogy (including English as a Foreign Language) since our inception in 1981.  We are the largest program of our kind in the state of Massachusetts and are consistently recognized as one of the most noteworthy graduate programs at UMass Boston.
