Students acquire knowledge about language

Students need to acquire knowledge about language rather than just knowledge of it. Do you agree?

Your sentence is ambiguous. Can you please rephrase it?

How is it ambiguous?

It is not clear enough to show what you are trying to say. Expand your question.

Just elaborate a bit more. What is "knowledge about" and "knowledge of," for example?

I think that Pos means that when learning to speak a language the student should also learn the history and body of knowledge associated with it.
