Social Styles and the Second Language Acquisition of Spanish-Speaking Kindergartners.
Strong, Michael
TESOL Quarterly, v17 n2 p241-58 Jun 1983
Seven personality traits are examined as they relate to the speed of English acquisition among 13 children. Contrary to previous conclusions, faster learners did not seek to befriend or identify more with English-speaking children than slow learners, but were more talkative, responsive, and gregarious. Implications are discussed. (MSE)
