Language Acquisition and Language Learning: A Plea for Syncretism.
Higgs, Theodore V.
Modern Language Journal, v6 n1 p8-14 Spr 1985
Discusses the apparent opposition between the concepts of language learning and language acquisition in the context of adult second-language study. Proposes that these two concepts are mutually supportive, not mutually exclusive. Demonstrates how the implications of learning vs. acquisition can be integrated into a communicative proficiency-oriented classroom. (SED)
