As many of your might have experienced, learning to speak a second language can be quite difficult. This is especially true for adults. Even if we do learn some rudimentary version of a language that is not native to us, many adults do not become fluent. However, young children seem to learn multiple languages quite easily. For this discussion, please share any experiences you have had with learning a second language – whether it is from childhood, a high school language class requirement, immersion in another culture, or trying to learn it on your own. If you can fluently speak more than one language, share how you were able to do that. How old were you when you learned the second language? How was it taught to you?

If you haven’t become fluent (yet), why do you think that is? How could you have improved your success?

For those of you who have never tried to learn a second language, how hard do you think it would be to start to learn one right now? Why? How would you go about making sure that you were as successful as possible?

Provide your initial post by 11:59 pm on Sunday. Your initial post should be at least 200 words in length, excluding the discussion prompt and the references. Please use in-text APA citations within your post as well as full APA references at the end of your post.
