Acquisition vs. Learning

Thursday, 12 April 2012 08:17 administrator
Children acquire a first language through thousands of hours of “natural immersion.” They rely on massive amounts of neurons to absorb language directly.

Adults learn a second language via the use of cognitive tools. They categorize, classify, and associate new information with existing information.

Some people think learning a second language = creating a separate iceberg. The reality though is that adults have an underlying cognitive proficiency.

The Lifeprint Curriculumon ASLTC makes use of the underlying cognitive proficiency of adults.

We are low cost and/or free. We are constantly evolving: adding more video, adding courses with lessons, tests, and specialized vocabulary. We evolve with peer input. Feel free to suggest improvements and changes.
