influencing factor that influences language acquisition in children; the environment provides the language inputs that the child is able to acquire and process thus acquiring a given language. The environment also influences the language acquisition in children based on the kind of interactions that the child will have with the specific members of the community to enhance language the acquiring of language. The child is mainly influenced by what he/she hears from the surrounding environment, which also helps in natural development of the child. The specific factors that have been mentioned include: social interactions with members of the community; music, whereby infants will prefer listening to familiar sounds and sounds that they can associate with; and genetic composition. There is also a major difference between children who are brought up higher educated, higher socio-economic status families and those who are brought up in lower educated, lower socio economic status families. The higher educated families will expose their children to more vocabulary and more complex grammatical sentences, which will in turn motivate the child to acquire a given language more accurately and quickly that those brought up in the latter families.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
