خلاصه مقاله:
Learners considering their age (children & adults) differ fundamentally, and these differences can affect the second language learning. This study aimed at investigating the relationship between EFL learners’ age and their grammar learning. Oxford placement test was used to homogenize the participants. Based on the oxford placement test, the students were homogenized as the beginner ones and then they were distributed into two groups of children and adults each containing ٥٠ students. In order to have a general and genuine reflection of the effect of age on EFL learners’ grammar learning, oxford grammar test was used as a pre-test and post-test (simple present , present continuous & to be verbs) to assess the participants’ grammar in all groups. The results revealed that there is not a critical period, but a sensitive period for second language grammar learning, and adults can show to be better learners in grammar learning.
