    In my experience, learning a second language requires an entirely different way of learning that fosters creativity in the classroom. For example, learning a second language involves activities such as writing short stories, talking with classmates, watching movies from another culture, and interacting in games. Myth: Children learn a second language quickly and easily. Reality: A variety of socio-cultural factors can affect language learning. ELL students might face additional challenges such as acclimating to a new culture and status that interfere with learn-ing English. Given this, instructors should use The James R. Squire Office for Policy Research.

    This perspective suggests that applying machine learning to economics requires finding relevant yˆ tasks. One category of such applications appears when using new kinds of data for traditional questions; for example, in measuring economic activity using satellite images or in classifying industries using corporate K filings. Language Learning: Input View Language is an ‘in-the-head’ phenomenon, and its system of forms is innate and rule-governed. (i + 1) (‘the initial state + a little bit more’) - messages must be comprehensible and slightly more complex than that of a speaker’s current linguistic knowledge. Interaction View.

Although economic considerations are influential in one's success or failure at second language learning, sociolinguistic and psycholinguistic factors should not be overlooked.
