 Article Title :: Language Acquisition vs Language Learning
According to linguists (i.e. scientits who engage in the scientific study of human language)there is an important distinction between language acquisition and language learning.As you may well have noticed, children acquire their mother tongue through interaction with their parents and the environment that sorrounds them. Their need to communicate paves the way for language acquisition to take place. As experts suggest, there is an innate capacity in every human being to acquire language. By the time a child is five years old, s/he can express ideas clearly and almost perfectly from the point of view of language and grammar. Although, parents never sit with children to explain to t  (read full article)

 Article Title :: After Studying Spanish For Years You Cannot Progress Beyond A Certain Stage-What's Wrong With You?
THE WRONG APPROACHDid you know that the teaching methodology accounts for over 90% of the students’ success or failure in learning a second language effectively?In other words, it’s not your fault if you have not been able to achieve your goals so far. Most likely, the kind of work you’ve been doing may be the one to blame.Most language courses revolve around grammar and vocabulary drills which result in nothing but frustration and the feeling that “you are not cut out to learn Spanish.”Those courses focus so much on students’ errors, that they cause you to lose confidence and drastically reduce your oral fluency in the language by “punishing”   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Advantages of E-Learning Over Traditional Instruction of a Second Language
Benefits of E-learningWhen it comes to Second Language Acquisition, E-learning has definite benefits over traditional classroom training. While the most obvious are the flexibility and the cost savings from not having to travel or spend excess time away from work, there are also others that might not be so obvious. For example:* You learn at your own pace and much faster without depending on someone else's progress. If something is too easy you can pass on to the next topic with the click of a button. If something seems too hard for you, you can devote as much time as you need to comprehend it entirely.* You can work from any location and any time - E-learners can go   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Second Language Acquisition in Adult Learners
In our previous mini-article entitled "Language Acquisition vs. Language Learning" we mentioned an important distinction in the way in which children acquire their mother tongue naturally, by means of meaningful interactions with their parents in which the focus of every single exchange is communicative in nature.Adults, in contrast, when trying to learn a second language, are usually presented with a myriad of grammar rules and patterns to master from the very first class. It is said by advocates of these procedures, that their cognitive development cannot be equalled to that of a child and that statement is very true indeed. However, the fact that there are important cognitive an  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Second Language Acquisition in Adult Learners - Part 2
In our previous mini-article entitled "Second Language Acquisition in Adult Learners" we mentioned that one of the main reasons why adults fail to acquire the language effectively is because they are presented almost exclusively with unnatural samples of language devoid of meaning or communicative goals. They are forced to repeat grammar patters, vocabulary drills and similar kinds of exercises which give them the false belief that they hava a good command of the language. However, when faced with a real situation, most adult learners working like this simply dry up and fail to communicate or_ in the best of cases, they have several problems to both to understand and to get their message   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Compelling Reasons to Study Spanish
Today I would like to write about a recurrent question I get in my website from many different users worldwide. They hear time and again of the importance of speaking Spanish fluently to be prepared. What they should they be prepared for? Many already know the answer to this, namely businessmen, men of vision and professionals in specific fields. However, some users still do not see why they should learn to speak Spanish.And it may be true. Some people may not think of this language as so important to their immediate reality right now. After all, they get by using their native language or maybe a second language and they are quite successful in their lives and careers even without   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Are Adults Too Old to Start to Learn a New Language?
This is another installment in our series of mini-articles on Language Acquisition.Although it is commonly believed that children acquire a Second language quickly and effectively, research shows that the same could be the case with adults, given certain conditions.The wealth of evidence clearly demonstrates that there is by no means any biologically determined constraint on the language learning capacity that emerges at a particular age, nor any maturational process which requires that older language learners function differently than younger language learners.This of course does not imply that younger and older learners acquire the language in precisely the same way  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Writing Japanese: What is Kanji, Hiragana and Katakana
The Japanese language is so fascinating. The tonal qualities of the language is quite unique and the inherent politeness of the Japanese people is translated well into its language which is in turns elegant and stylish and drips with respect. Japanese writing is also a very elegant script and it has evolved from its original Chinese script beginnings to become something that is intrinsically Japanese. There are actually different types or ways of writing Japanese characters and it has been a source of confusion for people who are not familiar with Japanese culture or for students of Japanese culture who have not yet fully researched the intricacies of the Japanese written langua  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Why Should People Learn Spanish?
I remember the first time I visited Mexico. It is a beautiful country. I was young so naturally, I went with my parents. None of us could speak more than a few words of Spanish. We had a vague idea of how the Mexican currency worked, but we were clueless when it came to how much to pay people at restaurants and the shops. Let’s just say it was an interesting experience (and I’m sure we were overcharged a number of times). Oftentimes, it’s when you have to go without it that you realize how important communication really is. For example, it’s not fun listening to a group of people talk about the latest widget or gadget when you know absolutely nothing about it. You sure   (read full article)
