Adults learning a second language requires more than memorizing model phrases to be used given in given situations. For a person to own elaborate language related knowledge, the learning process must in essence be based on reasoning and comprehension.
Learning a new language is a two-step process; the latter being integrating recently acquired grammatical concepts into everyday communication skills. This step is a notable challenge for many learners; the nature of which will often differ from one person to another.
Several factors can affect the learning process, including:
- Fear of judgement
Establishing the various elements at play is therefore essential to the learner’s success.
