The Optimum Age for Beginning the Study of Modern Languages.
Andersson, Theodore
International Review of Education, v6 n3 p298-308 1960
In line with the psychologists' viewpoint on child development, an argument is made for reconsidering the timing and type of modern language instruction in the school. Evidence of the receptiveness of children to language learning from birth to age eleven is discussed, along with the efficacy of learning through a direct, or school, experience. (AF)
