Language Aptitude and Second Language Proficiency in Classroom Learners of Different Starting Ages.
Harley, Birgit; Hart, Doug
Studies in Second Language Acquisition, v19 n3 p379-400 Sep 1997
Investigates the relationship between language aptitude components and second language (L2) outcomes among learners whose intensive L2 exposure began at different ages. Findings reveal that in adolescence immersion, a positive relationship occurs between L2 outcomes and an analytical dimension of language aptitude, whereas in early immersion, a positive relationship exists between L2 outcomes and memory ability.
