1) Q1 : We learn language by ear as small children. But is it more difficult as an adult ? If so, how do you mitigate that?
ð When we learn language by ear as small children become easier than learning when become an adult and the best ways to mitigate that’s is from:
1) Know about yourself and your goals : think about how you will use that language List the situations in which you expect to use that language and the skills you will need in those situations.
2) Finding the joy of childhood :you can fellow some these steps
a) Reading regularly : You can read with your child individually or set up a family reading time where everyone chooses and reads their own book. Set an example of the importance you place in your home by filling your home with printed materials: newspapers, magazines, and even posters.
b) Encourage your self to speak : Encourage yourself to speak , to talk about your feelings and to make your own choices about what to say.
c) Sharing with others or works as group: Share with her or your children the different ways you can get new information,
3) Abstract memory processes can take priority. Some laboratory activities are not well suited for everyday life, such as transcranial magnetic stimulation, hypnosis, sleep deprivation,
4) Motivate yourself : make a study schedule and try to follow it every day until it will turn into a habit. This way, you will get in the mood to study more quickly and your will be able to focus better on the things you have to learn.
2) Q2 : What are the particular challenges of learning a language that isn’t written down ?
ð The particular challenges of learning a language that isn’t written down are :
1) Oral tradition compromised : was one of the last languages to be affected by non-native contact, so our oral tradition has only recently been compromised.
2) Lack of practice opportunities or no consistency when using english writing conventions to represent a different language.
3) Communication : fear of speaking with strangers or cannot recognise the phonemes in others languages partly because they are just unable to hear the unfamiliar sounds.
4) Privacy : appreciate each other’s individuality and embrace different pronunciations. With standardisation, we might lose that personalisation or writing our language down also offers a path for outsiders to potentially exploit cultural knowledge intended only for Native people
3) Q3 : a short paragraph discussing your own way (as a language learner) to develop your receptive and productive skills.
ð Through my experiences, I can summarize some of the points that helped me as a height school or university student in developing production and reception skills from exposure whether from an enjoyable authentic text or a quality ESL textbook. For example, television, music, books, and magazines are great ways to build vocabulary while incidentally promoting learner autonomy. The next step is how to develop productivity skills through communication and we can define it to the teacher or as student using well-designed activities to integrate many language skills such as reading, writing, listening, and reading. The next point is by unleashing my curiosity and the search for knowledge,
