Course Details

Ideas of how babies learn languages have changed greatly in recent years. The new ideas also affect our understanding of how adults learn new languages. This course will be a brief survey of language learning from before birth to adulthood. Evidence will be drawn from psychology, psychiatry, and neurology as well as from linguistics. After completing this course, people who are trying to learn second languages will understand some of the difficulties and techniques of learning. Those who are interested in language teaching will understand more clearly what areas they want to study further.
