For example, first-year Spanish students might use the Latin American Spanish Online Language Learning program over the summer to practice the Spanish language before second-year classes begin in the fall. First Language Acquisition Language acquisition is the process whereby children acquire their first languages. Language learning programs are legitimate means for learning second languages so long as the language instruction is explicit especially in the area of grammar education.

In addition to the problems with the claim of second language acquisition, many language learning programs also mistakenly claim to teach second languages through language immersion. However, children who grow up in an environment in which both German and English are spoken and heard equally will acquire both German and English as their first languages.

The Roles of Language Learning Programs Although second language learners cannot acquire languages through language learning programs, such learners can learn second languages through such programs.

Children must receive adequate linguistic input including phonology speech soundssemantics vocabulary and meaninggrammar syntax or word order and morphology or grammatical markersand pragmatics use and context and prosody intonation, rhythm, stress before the end of the critical period in order to acquire their first languages.

However, many language learning programs that promise language acquisition through immersion fail to take into account the differences between first language acquisition and second language learning as well as the necessary linguistic environment for authentic language immersion. The Everywhere German Audio Course similarly provides explicit German language instruction including grammar and vocabulary lessons.

Instead, real language learning through language immersion can only occur when language learners physically and mentally immerse themselves in a linguistic environment with adequate linguistic input from the target language.

Nonetheless, language immersion programs can reinforce the learning that language learners gained through explicit second language education and instruction. program available through Transparent Language promises not only to teach vocabulary and pronunciation through simulated English language conversations but also to reference English grammar.

However, authentic language immersion cannot happen through a computer program.

The acquisition and use of Spanish and English as first and second languages: Andersen, Roger W. (ed.), Washington, D.C.: TESOL, 1979, 181 pp., $6.50

Language Immersion Language immersion is a second language learning method in which language learners immerse themselves in the target second language.

Language learning requires explicit instruction in speaking and hearing additional languages. Similarly, a man who acquired Japanese as a child and learned English and Spanish as an adult would also have one first language Japanese but two second languages English and Spanish.

Second Language Acquisition The theory behind language learning programs with Rosetta Stone as the most well-known is that adults past the critical period can acquire language.

Defining First Language Acquisition, Second Language Learning, Language Immersion, and 2nd Language Acquisition

Older children and adults may learn one or more second languages. However, once language learners learn second languages, language immersion programs like Rosetta Stone can help to review and reinforce language learning. Although some older children and adults can seemingly acquire languages in addition to their first, most people must learn second languages.

For example, Spanish language learners might plan a through an extended vacation to a Spanish-speaking country and communicate only with the Spanish language. Second Language Learning Language learning, in contrast to language acquisition, is the process whereby humans past the critical period learn second languages.

Language acquisition in children just seems to happen.
