Language acquisition does not require extensive use of conscious grammatical rules, and does not require tedious drill. Acquisition requires meaningful interaction in the target language - natural communication - in which speakers are concerned not with the form of their utterances but with the messages they are conveying and understanding.

Second Language Acquisition and Second - Stephen Krashen
Second-language acquisition SLA , sometimes called second-language learning — otherwise referred to as L2 language 2 acquisition , is the process by which people learn a second language. Second-language acquisition is also the scientific discipline devoted to studying that process. The field of second-language acquisition is a sub-discipline of applied linguistics but also receives research attention from a variety of other disciplines, such as psychology and education. A central theme in SLA research is that of interlanguage : the idea that the language that learners use is not simply the result of differences between the languages that they already know and the language that they are learning, but a complete language system in its own right, with its own systematic rules. This interlanguage gradually develops as learners are exposed to the targeted language. The order in which learners acquire features of their new language stays remarkably constant, even for learners with different native languages and regardless of whether they have had language instruction. However, languages that learners already know can have a significant influence on the process of learning a new one.

Though neurological science, linguistics and neurolinguistics advance rapidly and gain new insights currently, one of human life's greatest mysteries still remains rather secret: New born children manage to acquire first steps of language really fast and almost gain perfection in complex grammatical abilities within a couple of years without someone instructing them about these features of language. In Contrast, adults undergo more or less great difficulties by learning a second language, additionally to their mother language and almost never attain perfection though spending a big effort. The question which automatically arises is the one concerning the differences between the two processes. Dealing with this topic, two terms regularly appear: Acquisition, which means a more or less unconscious process of absorbing language, and learning, which most of the time means a conscious process of getting the ability to perform a second language. The first of the named terms is closely linked to children's abilities of acquiring their mother tongue knowledge unconsciously.
Theory and Practice of Second Language Acquisition is an academic research-oriented journal devoted to the theoretical issues concerning language acquisition processes and their practical classroom implications. It also focuses on the effects of research on language acquisition on language instruction in different educational settings. Additionally, the journal sets out to address the issues of natural conditions for language development in both bilingual and multilingual contexts. Studying language acquisition and learning requires a multidisciplinary approach, as it embraces both linguistic and psychological dimensions of these processes. We believe that this multidisciplinary perspective calls for a variety of research methods to be employed from quantitative to qualitative and mixed instruments.
