Is it possible to master a new foreign language as an adult? -On the critical period hypothesis- [JP]

Lecture Description

The "Mini-lecture Program" is part of the Active Learning Practice in the Library. This program offers you to give active learning oriented lectures by graduate students and young faculty members who have completed the University of Tokyo Future Faculty Program (UTokyo FFP).

When it comes to learning language, is younger really better? In this mini-lecture, I talk about the “Critical Period Hypothesis” in Second Language Acquisition (SLA). Three examples supporting the hypothesis are given.

NOTE:

- This lecture was conducted only in Japanese.
