Language acquisition is the process by which humans acquire the capacity to perceive and comprehend language (in other words, gain the ability to be aware of language and to understand it), as well as to produce and use words and sentences to communicate.
Second-language acquisition (SLA), sometimes called second-language learning — otherwise referred to as L2 (language 2) acquisition, is the process by which people learn a foreign language.
In this episode, we talk about the process of learning a new language, the languages we speak, and tips on how to improve. So please bring a pen and notebook as we discuss learning a foreign language.
