Among the language skills, the first skill a child acquires in his or her mother tongue is the ability to understand the spoken words, i.e., the skill of listening. Then he / she tries to reproduce the sound sequences heard from others to express his / her desires, aspirations and needs, and thereby acquire the skill of speaking. Similarly reading and writing skills are also acquired gradually. This paper deals with Language Learning and Acquisition.

Among the language skills, the first skill a child acquires in his or her mother tongue is the ability to understand the spoken words, i.e., the skill of listening. Then he / she tries to reproduce the sound sequences heard from others to express his / her desires, aspirations and needs, and thereby acquire the skill of speaking. Similarly reading and writing skills are also acquired gradually. This paper deals with Language Learning and Acquisition.
