2288. Grown-ups can also acquire the target language

Obviously adults can learn a language. 

However, can they acquire a language? 

Scholar H. Douglas Brown, from San Francisco State University, states a great Yes. 

I expose my students to a lot of aural English, and now, when the end of the year is coming, I can definitely say they can acquire the language. 

Besides they make daily presentations or comments or describing pictures from a magazine. Thus they’re using the language, even before and after the class, just because they like, naturalistically. / Photo from: headsup boyslife org. Rushmore Mountain with the effigies of Washington, Roosevelt, Lincoln and… Jefferson? Any comments are welcome.
