Slavoff, Georgina R.; Johnson, Jacqueline S.
Studies in Second Language Acquisition, v17 n1 p1-16 Mar 1995
Evaluates the role of age on the rate of acquiring English as a second language in an immersion setting in children with native languages typologically very different from English. Results suggest that on certain aspects of grammar, different-aged children can acquire a second language during the first three years of acquisition at similar rates when their native language is very different from the target.
