Perceptions Related to Language Learning
The native language affects a person’s study of a second language. That test proved that even though word-based perception is highly enhanced in a second language learner, there may be a drawback in internalizing the overall comprehension of a second language.
There are differences in perceptual differentiation. We are more prone to notice differences between categories than sub-categories.
Infant Speech Perception
Infants begin to recognize very small differences between speech sounds and they learn it early in life. That is the reason why adult learners of a second language cannot get the kind of fluency that a young native speaker has.
Sensory and Auditory Perception
The nature of our sensory perceptions and their relation to reality can be dealt with successfully in a language learning atmosphere. Music and sound give an impact on the ear and the brain and the cognition of rhythm, melody and structure gets embedded in the learner’s memory.
People perceive things that they see differently. Goals, wishes, sex, race and gender are perceived as sub-categories in visual perception. Studies in visual perception look at how you can look at beautiful faces, scenery and things and change our stress levels. It even deals with the notion whether we would grow up differently if we live in Asia or in North America. Visual perception becomes a factor in learning concepts of different cultures and traditions.
