How do children best learn a second language?



Where do you learn the most English in the shortest amount of time, in Sweden or Vietnam? Swedish children are better at communicating, while Vietnamese children are better at constructing correct sentences and at understanding language rules. This was the result of a study of children 11–12 years old by doctoral student Vi Thanh Son at Lund University in Sweden...



Vi Thanh Son will complete her doctoral studies at the end of 2016 with a thesis with the working title: "Acquiring English as a second language: a comparison of learning and teaching English in Swedish and Vietnamese primary schools", and she will participate in the conference The Bridging Language Acquisition and Language Policy Symposium on 17–18 June.
