Second Languange Acquisition, Language, Working Memory, Languange


In order to provide a foundation for comprehending the various problematic factors that have the potential to influence a person's second language acquisition (SLA), this article presents a research narrative on working memory (WM).Working memory has been found to play a significant role in new word acquisition as well as a more comprehensive measure of language acquisition.According to Daneman and Green (1986), it is a significant factor in determining how easily elementary school students deduce a word's meaning from its context.Daneman and Green also contend that memory cannot directly facilitate word growth, noting that readers use context to make sense of partially known words.There is evidence to support the role of working memory in foreign language acquisition, and the literature provides convincing evidence of the importance of working memory for the comprehension and acquisition of first languages.
