One's first language is learned almost entirely implicitly, but learning a second language most often occurs completely explicitly. Previous research has suggested that learners must notice and be aware of target forms in order to learn and use them productively; however, others have proposed that awareness is not necessary for uptake (i.e., implicit learning can occur in a L2). This study is a partial replication of two previous studies, one by Williams and the other by Hama and Leow, which found conflicting results, and using a slightly modified methodology, further investigates if and how aspects of a second language can be learned implicitly, and what facilitates this process.
