Recent study sheds new light on second language learning in adulthood
from Medical Xpress
A recent study shows that assimilation of L2 vowels to L1 phonemes governs language learning in adulthood; researchers urge development of novel methods of second language teaching. The behavioral and neural evidence of the study was found by researchers at Aalto University in Finland and at the University of Salento in Italy. The study was the first one to identify the neural mechanisms underlying the learning of L2 sounds (second language) in adulthood.
