This paper discusses various theories of language acquisition for second language learners. The paper looks at how the teacher's personality, aptitude, age and motivation affect how well or poorly these theories and the corresponding methods can be applied. In light of this, the paper assesses three different methods of language acquisition and the corresponding theories.
From the Paper:"All SLA theories and teaching methodologies have to take individual variables into account. Previously, we have examined these variables in terms of the learner. Age, aptitude, motivation and personality all have an impact on how the teaching is implemented and how it is received. For instance, because age so strongly affects the ease with which language is acquired, teaching has to be different for different age groups. However, the way that individual factors affect teachers is important, as well. In particular, personality and aptitude affect the teaching methodology that the teacher should use and that will be most effective for him or her."
