Learning a language as an adult provides unique challenges to every learner. While many methods exist, from Rosetta Stone® to Defense Language Institute courses, each one offers its own advantages and disadvantages. As children, we naturally pick up language at a rapid pace, but this ability begins to fade around age six, and decreases dramatically after adolescence. Due to this change in learning abilities, we need to acknowledge the importance of tailoring language study specifically for adults.
We present technology enhanced training systems as a viable technology for adult learners. With the implementation of technology enhanced classrooms, SmartBoards, computers, internet, teleconferencing and other resources, an organization can increase student engagement, appeal to different types of learners, and increase overall student retention and effectiveness in the field.
