Answer:

Receiving and processing information from a textbook for application can be extremely challenging especially for the language learner if they lack a clear procedure for how to approach and analyze the text. Teaching students the importance of first looking over a chapter to assess the overall idea and then taking note of the titles and subtitles to see what they reveal about the chapter helps students determine a purpose for reading. Additionally, students should learn how to read a chapter section by section and paragraph by paragraph making notes in the margins such as brief summaries, illustrations or charts. Students will also benefit from learning how to highlight and recite aloud key information. Finally, once the student understands how to go through a chapter, they should then review the entire chapter.

Answer:

While diligence and persistence enable some language learners to progress much quicker than others, successful language acquisition is generally influenced by the interplay between external and internal factors. The rate and pace at which a student is able to assimilate a new language often depends on factors that are both part of the individual and those that categorize the learning circumstance. Personal experiences, age, cognition are among the internal factors that students bring with them. External factors may include the type of instruction provided, opportunities to share in meaningful interaction with native speakers in different settings and curriculum.
