Abstract

Second language acquisition or foreign language learning is usually associated with various elements including intelligence, motivation, learner beliefs, learning strategies, and some other issues related to teachers or educational associates. These elements have been proven to be essential in second or foreign language acquisition. However; foreign language acquisition is not solely the process which includes learning of grammar, words, or syntax of a specific language. Second language acquisition is -to some extent- sure to be associated with cultural acquisition of a target language. When the culture of a specific language is the subject of interest, it is probable to assume second language acquisition as a cultural translation process. In this paper, it will be argued that theories of Translation Studies may put forward some fruitful ideas related to second language acquisition in the context of interdisciplinarity.
