Abstract

The problem of acquisition of English as a second language is very challenging for every educated person. Adults use different ways to get ESL competence. Most of them are in non-formal and informal education.The goal of the study was to investigate what ways of non-formal/informal ESL learning are used by adults in Ukraine. Two age groups of adults were chosen to trace the similarities and differences.Younger adults were students at tertiery level and senior adults were scholars at academician institutions. The obtained results showed that there are more differences than similarities in their non-formal/informal ways of ESL acquisition which can be explained by different age and experience.
