What is second language acquisition?

  • Second language can refer to any language that is learned subsequent to the mother tongue

  • The way in which people learn language other than their mother tongue, inside or outside the room

What are the goal of SLA?

  • Identifying the external and internal factors that account for why learners acquire an L2 in the way they do

  • How L2 proceeds and to explain about the process of developing SLA

  • External factor :

    • social milieu in which learning takes place

    • the input that learners receive

  • Internal factors :

    • Learners posses cognitives mechanism which enable them to extract information

    • Learners posses general knowledge about the world

    • Learners posses communication strategies

Case study

  • A case study is a detailed study of a learner’s acquisition of an L2

  • The result of case study:

    • Raise a number of important methodological issues relating to S2 acquisition

    • Raise issues relating to the description of learner language

    • They point of some of the problem researches experience

Methodological Issues

  • Language is such complex phenomenon that researchers have generally preferred to focus on some specific aspect rather than on the whole of it

  • A learner has acquired a feature of target language

Issues in the description of learning language

  • Learners make errors of different kinds

  • L2 learners acquire a large number of formulaic chunks

  • Learners acquire the language systematically

Issues in explanation of L2 acquisition

  • Learners must engage in both item learning and system learning

  • The systematic nature of L2 acquisition also requires explanation
