Spurious Quotation #10

It is a truth universally unacknowledged in the EFL industry that very low level adult learners are always likely to stay that way. After all, they have had the same opportunities for exposure as their higher level colleagues, they've had the same number of years learning English. The reason for their low level, therefore, must be that they have no aptitude for language acquisition, to use professional terms. Or in layman's terms, they're simply stupid.
