Learner Language: Tools for Teachers | Tarone & Swierzbin, 2010

"Learner language is the constantly changing ability students have to communicate as they learn a new language. It provides an index of students progress, allowing teachers to determine how to best educate them. By analyzing examples of learner language, students develop skills to address it when they are teaching."

Excellent article on TBLT.

Shona Whyte's curator insight, September 27, 2013 11:08 AM

In this article in University of Sydney papers in TESOL, 2013, Ellis tackles 8 criticisms of TBLT, downgraded to "misconceptions" on the part of writers such as Widdowson, Swan, Sheen, and Seedhouse, before addressing Swan's "legislation by hypothesis" attack.  In his conclusion, he acknowledges that "TBLT offers a radically different approach to teaching a second language. As such, it is not surprising that its advocacy has met with resistance, especially from those who, for one reason or another, support a more traditional ‘focus-on-forms’ approach."  Ellis expresses a personal preference for a short, sharp shock of intense TBLT teaching in a curriculum which includes other approaches, rather than a watered-down task-supported approach spread throughout the curriculum.

An interesting read. I love learning about what I do, revisiting ideas and theories and reworking on my techniques.

At 155 slides, there's probably more than you'll ever need to know about TBLT - definitions, theory (Long, Pica), implementations (Norris, Van den Branden), criticisms, (Littlewood, Swan), modifications and new rationales (holistic learning, as a response to Abbott or Medgyes's notion of TENOR).  Really great overview with detailed analysis and references.
