Title: Age and the Acquisition of English as a Foreign Language
Author: Georgette Ioup
Institution: University of New Orleans
Linguistic Field: Applied Linguistics; Language Acquisition
Abstract: There have been a number of recent books devoted to the effects of age on language acquisition; this volume is different. It is the first book to examine the relationship of age to ultimate attainment in foreign language learning. One might wonder whether there is, in fact, any relationship between the age of onset and ultimate attainment in classroom learning where the language being taught is not spoken within the community. However, if one exists, then what is the optimal age to begin foreign language instruction?
