It is believed that children learn everything fast as they can grasp everything more quickly; on the other side, there is an issue with the age to learn a language. The student of any style who is younger tends to get hold of the tongue better because his or her brain is not as messy with information as the older ones is.
However, let us not assume anything and try to reason whether the younger student is genuinely a better learner than the older.
Generally, the child is given a few nouns and simple verbs to learn in the first few weeks. Moreover, these nouns and verbs are introduced to the child in the form of stories or short passages. The teacher can also make things more thrilling by acting out a reading and then translating it.
Repetition is also a method often used to teach kids.
The older student of the language learning is introduced to the nouns just like the other child but with the extra definite and indefinite articles that depend upon the gender of the noun. This is because there are numerous languages, for example, Latin and Hindi that have gender-specific names. This is a hint of the language that the adult mind will find easier to understand. When it comes to the verbs, the adult student will, of course, concentrate on the tenses of the verb and verb conjugations. We can see that the adult student of any language tends to understand the grammar of that language thoroughly. This is something that the child will not grasp so easily. Though both the adult and the child are learning the same language, the adult concentrates on and internalizes the structure of the language better.
It is immaterial to compare two sets of the student on the basis of age as the older group will naturally be well versed with the grammar and structure of the language compared with the younger. The younger group will be able to pronounce faster and speak the new language very well.
Although the things mentioned above are put forward theoretically, it is clear that real examples will also point towards the same thing. A good example is the translation service of London employees. This translation service has two kinds of translators: one is the general and the other technical. The general translators are the younger ones who have just qualified, whereas the technical translators have a few years of experience behind them. These differences in age show that youngsters and elders attitude towards a new language.
