What is it about?
This paper interviewed 14 students who studied introductory accounting in English as an additional language. The listening, reading, speaking and writing experiences of students who were academically successful versus those who were not, were compared. The findings indicate that students exposure to meaningful opportunities to interact verbally (listen and speak) in both formal and informal situations may have contributed to their academic success. Students who were academically successful were also more likely to interact deeply with their study material while reading.

Why is it important?
It is anticipated that the results will contribute towards building a bridge between accounting education and Second Language Acquisition Research and provide a more informed linguistic foundation for incorporating language skills into the accounting curriculum.
