This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:
1st language vs 2nd language acquisitionThe differences between how language learners acquire their first language and learn a foreign language should be a topic that gets more attention, as it could help clarify why students struggle with new languages. In order to discuss the similarities and differences, we need to define some of the major lexicon associated with the topic. Generally speaking, someone’s first language (L1) is their native language. But are first and native languages always the same? Not according to the canadian census, which defines a first language as the one first learned and actually used by the learner. It is not uncommon for a person’s native language and first language to be different in countries like the USA and Canada. People whose first and native languages are different can be passive speakers of their native language, as their exposure was sufficient for comprehension, but not enough for communication. A person’s second language (L2) is usually thought of as any foreign language someone studies, usually as an adult. However, this is not quite accurate. Of course, any language that is not someone’s first (or native if they are the same) is a foreign language.
