Have you ever asked yourself how young children, who are learning to talk, can understand their natural language? Or even use it correctly without any grammatical mistakes? Well, that’s not a mystery any more…
Language is a phonological and grammatical system that helps people to communicate with each other. Children, actually, remember and use a language depending on how their parents and relevant talk until the age of five years old and until the age of eight years old they have already understand some grammatical rules of their natural language.
The processes young children go through in order to use a language are absolutely planned by a mechanism called biological calendar which provides everyone with the opportunity to understand a language even if it’s not their natural one. That’s why the
majority of scientists believe that children should start learning a foreign language from the age of three or at least five because it would be easier to acquire it.
Howver, it’s never late for learning a new language!!!
