Frequently Asked Questions

  • Language acquisition is the process of children acquiring a language through a subconscious process during which they are unaware of grammatical rules. This happens especially when they acquire their first language. They repeat what is said to them and get a feel of what is correct and what is not. In order to acquire a language, they need a source of natural communication. Language learning, on the other hand, is the result of direct instruction in the rules of language. Language learning is not an age appropriate activity for very young children as learning presupposes that learners have a conscious knowledge of the new language and can talk about that knowledge.
