Does intelligence influence SLA? How and waht kind of language ability?
- 1 decade agoFavorite Answer
Intelligence may influence the acquisition of some skills associated with SLA, such as those utilized in the formal study of a L2, but it is much less likely to influence the acquisition of oral fluency skills. To put it another way, intelligence may be a powerful predictor of success in classroom SLA, particularly when this consists of formal teaching methods, but much less so in naturalistic SLA, when L2 knowledge is developed through learning how to communicate in the target language. It should also be noted that the effects of intelligence are limited to the rate and success of SLA; there is no evidence that intelligence affects the rout of acquisition evident in spontaneous language use.Source(s): 自己

Second language acquisition, or SLA, is the processes by which people learn languages in addition to their native tongue(s).
Tests of language aptitude have proven extremely effective in predicting which learners will be successful in learning. However, considerable controversy remains about whether language aptitude is properly regarded as a unitary concept, an organic property of the brain, or as a complex of factors including motivation and short-term memory. Research has generally shown that language aptitude is quite distinct from general aptitude or intelligence, as measured by various tests, and is itself fairly consistently measurable by different tests.
