Toddlers who spent more time with older children learn improve language skills and become adept at learning new words, according ot a new research done at University of Waterloo. 
A comparative study was done between toddlers who spent more time with adults and those who spent more time with children. It was observed that toddlers were able to grasp new words better with older children than adults.
The experiment was conducted among 88 toddlers and their parents. Some of the toddlers spent more than eight hours or less with other children while other groups had spent more hours with children.
Most studies have focussed on the influence of adults in learning new words among toddlers but this study underscores the importance of making toddlers spent more time with older children.
