What Does It Take To Acquire Language?
Krashen, Stephen
ESL Magazine, v3 n3 p22-23 May-Jun 2000
Discusses what it takes to acquire language, and suggests that second language acquisition can occur without living in the country where the language is spoken and without formal instruction. The crucial variables appear to be comprehensible input and having a good relationship with speakers of the language. Provides an example of a Mexican immigrant in the United States who learned to speak Hebrew.(Author/VWL)
