WHY IS NATIVE LANGUAGE LEARNT SO WELL?
How does it happen that children learn their mother tongue so well? The answer in my opinion lies partly in the child himself, partly in the behavior of the people around him.
Let's focus on the latter one. Though a childs" teachers" may not have been trained in language teaching they take great pains to make their lessons easy & interesting, always repeating the same phrase & at the same time doing the thing they are talking about. They are greatly pleased at every little advance the child makes, Every awkward attempt meets with sympathy & encouragement, & the most difficult step on the path of language becomes the merriest game.
Unfortunately, teachers of language demand faultless accuracy from the beginning. By keeping their students working unnecessarily long at some little parts of the subject, they often weaken their interest in learning the language. So here I want to remind teachers of language: language will arrange itself in the brain without learning of too many special rules or the aid of elaborate explanations. That's the way language learning works.
