Natuerlicher Zweitsprachenerwerb im Fremdsprachenunterricht? (Natural Acquisition of a Second Language versus Foreign Language Instruction).
Bulletin CILA, n30 p23-48 1979
The "natural" acquisition of a second language is compared to learning from instruction, including aspects of learning such as sequence of items learned (e.g., syntactic) for both children and adults. It is concluded that suggestions offered hitherto for applying findings from research in natural acquisition to the field of foreign language teaching are not applicable. (JB)
