Abstract: This paper examines the relationship of age factor to second language acquisition. Age as an affective factor brings different performance stages in second language learning. The researchers in relation to the Critical Period Hypothesis and other variables have derived two major aspects of language learning - the younger the better and the older the better. However, there is no linear pattern of learning among the same age group of learners, and they learn differently and individually depending on variables like learning opportunities, the motivation to learn, individual differences and learning styles.
