In second language learning is there any evidence that fluency cannot be achieved without immersion among native language speakers? If 'yes', what is the reason?

    You can't prove a negative... and there's no universal definition of "fluency" ;) – Luke Sawczak Nov 2 '18 at 22:11
  • Further, individual variables swamp everything else. Some people will become fluent despite barriers, while others will plateau out with much lower fluency. – jlawler Nov 3 '18 at 0:45

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is about the language acquisition, not about Linguistics itself. Being edited to make it more specific, it may fit at Language Learning, however. – bytebuster Nov 3 '18 at 1:45
