Revisiting the evidence for a critical period in second language acquisition: Why variability matters
 
Speaker: Dr. David Birdsong, University of Texas at Austin Department of French & Italian
 
Description:  David Birdsong (Professor of French and Italian at the University of Texas at Austin) explores why different individuals achieve such wildly different levels of proficiency in studying a second language, particularly whether it matters at what age one begins studying a second language.  His research relates to the study of language education, psychology, aging, learning science, and the study of motivation.
 
Part of the Workshop on Language, Technology, and Society generously sponsored by the Institute for People and Technology, the GVU Center, and the Atlanta Global Studies Center
