The Ease Of Language Learning through Digital Language Lab

  1. 1. “Technology aiding pedagogy in Language Teaching” www.ecoleglobal.com
  2. 2. Language Acquisition vs Language Learning Language Acquisition Language Learning Mother tongue is acquired through interaction and the environment that surrounds the learners. Language learning is mostly grammatically oriented: tenses, rules, multiple choice exercises and so on and so forth. The need to communicate paves the way for language acquisition to take place. Language learning as seen today is the result of direct instruction in the rules of language. Through exposure to the language and meaningful communication that a first language is acquired, without the need of systematic studies of any kind. A student who has memorized the rules of the language may be able to succeed on a standardized test of English language but may not be able to speak or write correctly. In order to acquire language, the learner needs a source of natural communication. They can fill in the blanks on a grammar page. Research has shown, however, that knowing grammar rules does not necessarily result in good speaking or writing. www.ecoleglobal.com
