Abstract:

Research on second language acquisition (SLA) has identified language aptitudeand age of onset (AO), i.e., the age at which learners are first meaningfullyexposed to the L2, as robust predictors of rate of classroom language learningand level of ultimate L2 attainment in naturalistic settings, respectively. It is notsurprising, therefore, that recent years have witnessed a surge of interest in thecombination of age and aptitude as a powerful explanatory factor in SLA, andcentral to a viable SLA theory. The chapters in this volume provide new studiesand reviews of research findings on age effects, bilingualism effects,maturational constraints and sensitive periods in SLA, the sub-components oflanguage aptitude and the development of new aptitude measures, the influenceof AO and aptitude in combination on SLA, aptitude-treatment interactions, andthe implications of the research findings for language education policy andtailored language instruction.
