When the child starts to pick up language? He starts earlier than most
of us think and end much later than we think too, because there is an end of
sound and grammar acquisition, but there is always some new world learn so it
is an ongoing process.
The child starts learning language by imitation he starts to experiment
with babbling, then he use a one word sentence,
next a two word sentence, and later a whole sentence where he begins to expand
his language, that is not confined to speaking but to reading and writing skills.
Many scientists studied language acquisition, developed theories about vocabulary,
discourse, and grammar acquisition which is not just applicable in the English language
but also in other languages too.
Learning to read and write became an essential skill, because literacy
is not restrained in its use in education or at work it is part of our everyday
life in malls, restaurants, even within the same families literacy practice is
encouraged to help the child to grasp and understand the use of language and to
have confidence that he can deliver his messages properly in written and spoken
form to express their intentions and personality according to the image they
want to deliver to the people surrounding them.
The orthography system of the English has its downsides which cause some
difficulties that the child needs to overcome to have a good command over the language,
but it has its upsides that simplify the
learning of this language. Currently English is an international language that
is not just used by native speakers but also by non-native speakers , through
the course of learning English there are
different and common problems that both speakers face.
The language was among the first inventions of the human being, it has
its various systems that represent every nation round the world in its culture
and accomplishments that we have the need to be passed on through generations, and allow the new generation to express his
own time by his own world which gives the language new words and uses, causing
the language to change constantly.
The new theories that were an efforts of many scientist study one
language perspective at the time grammar ,discourse…etc. and getting those bits
and pieces into the jigsaw of language acquisition gives us the big picture of
its complexity and wondering nature
