Learning a new language and your age
Our hypothesis has been proven to be true. Adults are able to acquire a second language more quickly than children.
Learning a second language in a class room and actually acquiring the language in a foreign land can be two very different experiences. Classroom environments involves memorizing words and learning grammar with little opportunity to practice the language. When you live in a foreign country, you will constantly hear the words being used and subconsciously learn the new words with correct pronunciation sentence construction and grammar.
To improve the reliability and accuracy of our results, a larger sample of participants should be used.
This science fair project may be repeated, this time, by making the adults and children stay for a period of time in a foreign country or with a family that speaks the foreign language in order to compare their speed of learning
Modify the science project experiment, by having the children and adults attend language classes.
