Title: Against "Rules”
Webinar Description: The acquisition of a second language is often described as the learning of rules. But what if rules in the classic sense did not exist? In this webinar, we will explore this provocative topic, suggesting that language it is not a collection of classic rules and bears little resemblance to the way in which language is presented in textbooks or is talked about by teachers and many professionals. Implications for the nature of language acquisition as well as language instruction will be discussed.
