Chapter 8: Language, Thinking, and Reasoning.

Vote 0 Votes

In Chapter 8, we will mainly learn about how human's languages work, how our thinking and language related, and reasoning.
The reading first talks about the features of language. This is mainly about the 6 different steps to make a sentence that others may understand. It also talks about how children, disabled people and bilingual children learn language. Then we will learn the theoretical accounts of language acquisition.
Then the reading talks about thinking. This part is mainly talking about the relationships between language and thinking, especially when we are reading.
Finally we will learn about reasoning. We will learn about what methods we use, what factors affect us, and what strategies we use when we are solving problems.
Since I am learning another language this semester, I am very interested about how can a child learn a language, especially those children who grow up in a bilingual environment.
