Mon, 20 May 2019 Elizaveta Pachina Alumni Experiences The Differences Between Learning Your First Language vs. A Second One Learning a second language can feel like stepping into a whole new world compared to the way you learned your first language.

Mon, 06 Apr 2020 Elizaveta Pachina Teaching Ideas First and Second Language Acquisition: What do Teachers Need to be Aware of? Every person living in modern society has the first language; this is the language which we have learned fluently without conscious effort, it was taught to us as children by the people in our immediate surroundings, usually parents or caregivers.

Learners of a second language may, for example,...  [Read more]

Fri, 11 Oct 2019 Elizaveta Pachina Alumni Experiences What are Some Common Linguistic Problems As we all know that the process of learning how to speak our first and second or third languages are different, we acquire the first language and learn second and third languages. When we speak our mother language, we can just say it automatically, we acquire our mother language from our environment, before we learn words and sentences, but when we learn a second language, we inevitably need to learn the vocabularies, clauses, sentences, grammar, etc first, then try to translate the second language to our mother language, which is complex.
