The researchers were able to identify that this generalization is not completely true and that there are other factors involved. This research will be used to provide support for the opponent side of the argument that puberty and the age before puberty is the critical period to gain native like proficiency in learning a second language. In this research article the author provides a commentary and definition of an individual’s ability to speak a language in the same way a native user of that language speaks that language. In this article the author even states that the critical period hypothesis restricts the way researchers look at non-natives ability to learn a second language. This article will be used to define the concepts of nativelikeness as well as non-nativelikeness in relation to the usage of these concepts in the critical period argument. This research was conducted on Spanish subjects in order to identify the constraints they experience while gaining nativelike proficiency in learning a second language. The researchers were able to identify that there is a negative correlation between an individual’s ability to learn a second language with nativelike proficiency and age even once the critical period has elapsed. This study will be used to argue against the critical period hypothesis and it will be used to support the point that non-natives fail to develop nativelike proficiency in using a language before as well as after the critical period.
