Language Acquisition After Puberty

Children develop their first language or languages without any effort or instruction. At puberty this ability to develop language ceases. Adults must learn a new language or languages cognitively, i.e. by studying and learning grammar and vocabulary and practicing usually by communicating with others until they internalize what they have learned and are able to apply it to any situation.
