The different between a 3 year old and an 18 year old to learn a new language
Did you know that it is easier for a 3 year old to learn a second language than an 18 year old? This is because the 3 year old would still be developing. Also because a 3 year old would be exposed to more of it. another reason is because it is something new, not like they already have a first language. Lateralization affects the ability to learn a language.
Different between a younger and an older learner
A younger learner has easier input to learning a new language. First, they have an accent. Second, they have less to learn. Third, they don't have a first language. If they are older, they have different parts. But if they are younger, they have the same parts.
How long does it take to learn a language?
It takes about 2-3 years to speak a language, but won't be able to write it. Learning a language between 4-10 years would give you the ability to read, write, speak, and listen at an academic level.
Personality is one of the factors that effect a second language because if you are not choosing to learn and understand, you won't want to pay attention to the teacher and probably won't learn anything. First language development also effects because it would be harder for someone to learn a second language if they already have a first language. That also goes with age. Furthermore, it is easier to learn a language if you are a younger person than an older person.
