    • 1. Success in first language learning 3 Differences in how well they use it  Better public speakers  Better writers All normal children master their first language
    • 1. Failure in second language learning 4Most second language learners fail  More learners try to learn a language and fail than learners who try and succeed  Learners fail in different degrees  Learners progress stops before complete success

    • 4. Intuitions 7First language learners rely on their intuition (sense of what sounds right) to decide if a sentence is grammaticalGrammatical intuition for second language learners never develops completely
    • 5. Instruction 8Children never have formal lessons in their first language  Children’s first language develops through communicationMost second language learners must have some instruction
    • 6. Positive and negative evidence 9Children only hear  Language that has no mistakes (positive evidence)Second language learners hear  Language that has no mistakes  Explanations about mistakes and corrections of their mistakes (negative evidence)
