Canadian Modern Language Review : What is the best age to learn a second/foreign language?


Carmen Muñoz
University of Barcelona
munoz@ub.edu

The answer to the question, ‘what is the best age to learn a second/foreign language?’ is ‘it depends.’ It depends on who is learning, where, in what teaching/learning conditions, and with what aims. Below, I outline some of the advantages and challenges that belong to the different stages of the life course.

Den belgiske sproggrænse – en gordisk knude - SPROGMUSEET | SPROGMUSEET | foreign and second language teaching | Scoop.it
I 2013 kunne Belgiens sproggrænse fejre 50 års jubilæum. Grænsen må på mange måder siges at være ganske paradoksal – ikke mindst fordi den formår at dele landets fransk-, nederlandsk- og tysktalende befolkningsgrupper, alt imens den samtidig også er en væsentlig årsag til, at det splittede land kan holdes samlet.

What Do We Know about the Best Practices for Teaching Vocabulary? Horst (CMLR)

Learners of a new language need to acquire a huge amount of vocabulary. To get a sense of the size of the task, consider the following: Investigations of reading comprehension consistently show that learners of English have good understanding of a text written for native speakers only when an average of one word (or less) in every 50 is unfamiliar. It is estimated that knowledge of as many as 8,000 (!) word families is needed to reach that criterion. (The term “family” refers to a base word and its inflected and derived forms. For example, the sharp family includes sharper, sharpen, sharply, unsharpened, sharpness, and so on.) Since the task is clearly very large, it is important that vocabulary teaching be as efficient and effective as possible. The recommendations that follow are made with that reality in mind.

Evidence Rebuts Chomsky's Theory of Language Learning

Evidence Rebuts Chomsky's Theory of Language Learning | foreign and second language teaching | Scoop.it
The research suggests a radically different view, in which learning of a child’s first language does not rely on an innate grammar module. Instead the new research shows that young children use various types of thinking that may not be specific to language at all—such as the ability to classify the world into categories (people or objects, for instance) and to understand the relations among things.
