We'll explore how similarities and differences between languages can help or hurt the language-learning process, sometimes in ways that you might not expect!If you haven't seen our last video on how some languages are more difficult than others, watch it here! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZN3R6RhVmEYTo download all the available language learning content we mentioned in this podcast, or if you’d like the blog article that accompanies this episode, click here: https://blog.mangolanguages.com/how-the-languages-you-know-influence-the-languages-youre-learningWe also invite you to check out our website at: https://mangolanguages.com/ and follow us on social media @MangoLanguages.

This episode draws on Chapter 3, Crosslinguistic influences, which we highly recommend! In Second Language Acquisition: An Introductory Course (5th Ed.), Gass, Behney, & Plonsky (2020) give a rich historical context for the role of the native language in L2 learning, with many enlightening examples. Chapters 3, 5, and 7 are particularly relevant to this topic. If you’re interested in learning more about L3 transfer, check out a recent review by Puig-Mayenco, Gonzalez, Alonso, & Rothman (2020) in Second Language Research (Vol. 26, Issue 1, p. 31-64).Kaitlyn Tagarelli (PhD, Georgetown University) is a Linguist and the Head of Research at Mango Languages. She holds a Ph.D. in Linguistics from Georgetown University, specializing in how the mind and brain learn languages. Aside from geeking out about all things neuroscience and linguistics, she loves hanging out with her family at their Connecticut home, trying to convince them to speak French with her.#languagelearning #languagedifficulty #SLA
