Español Y El Cerebro

Studies have shown that younger learners of a new language use the same part of their brain as when learning their first language. Eric Lenneberg, a linguist and neurologist, stated that a second language is best learned between the ages of two years of age and puberty. There are many factors that affect your ability to learn a second language. Which are: motivation, age, access to using the language, personality, how well the first language has be developed, quality of instruction, and cognitive ability. When learning a new language you can expect to invest a long learning period. It take two to three years to develop a basic understanding, and four to ten years to read, write, speak, and listen at an academic level. While it may take years of study and practice to become proficient at a new language, understanding of words and phrases will come before a student is able to produce them for themselves.
