Correct any issues that I highlighted in your first draft. If something is highlighted and you are not sure what the issue is, ask a colleague or try looking at common usage in the Corpus of Contemporary American English (COCA): http://corpus.byu.edu/coca/. Add a paragraph to the end of your written response wherein you provide a brief theory of language acquisition based on your language learning experiences. So, in your original written response, I asked you to consider your personal experiences in language learning. In the final paragraph, I want you to take those experiences and hypothesize about language learning more generally. This will continue to serve as a background for the theories of language acquisition we will read about later in this course.
