Growing up in a small town in North Carolina, Lauren Collins never needed to speak a foreign language outside of high school Spanish classes. It wasn’t until she met her French-speaking husband and moved to Switzerland that she felt the need to become bilingual. She offers her humble opinion on the value of learning a new language.

Beneficios potenciales de la educación bilingüe. No se trata solo de los beneficios académicos, sino psicológicos y sociales. ¿Debería implantarse esta educación en España?

Willem Kuypers's curator insight, December 5, 2016 4:37 AM
L'étude montre surtout qu'il faut continuer avec les écoles d'immersion. Par contre, il n'y aucun lien avec parler deux langues à la maison. Les questions sont très différentes. La langue est bien plus qu'un outil de communication. La foyer familiale est le lieu de structuration et de maturation psychologique bien différente de ce qui se passe à l'école. La famille est l'hôpital la plus proche. Le jeu de différenciation du rôle maternel et paternel est favorisé par une langue unique.

Frontiers | It is an organ, it is new, but it is not a new organ. Conceptualizing language from a homological perspective | Evolutionary Developmental Biology | ADQUISICIÓN DE SEGUNDAS LENGUAS-SECOND LANGUAGE ADQUISITION | Scoop.it
It is a widely shared opinion among specialists that language is an evolutionary innovation, or that it contains some key evolutionary innovations. However, such claims are not based on a correspondingly consensual concept of ‘evolutionary innovation,’ but are rather expressed on atheoretical grounds. This fact has thus far acted as an obstacle for the collaborative effort upon which the task of disentangling the evolution of this human capacity should be built. In this paper, we suggest a formal approach to the issue, based on Günter Wagner’s recent theory of homologies and novelties. Within this new framework, we conclude that language is the human instantiation (thus an ‘homolog’) of a character widely represented in the nervous system of animals, which incorporates a number of interdependent innovative states that allows us conceptualizing it as a ‘variational modality’ of this ancient organ.

Instructed Second Language Acquisition

Instructed Second Language Acquisition is a peer-reviewed Journal that, twice a year, publishes research with a number of implications for language instruction. Second language acquisition is a rich and varied enterprise, carried out by researchers, whose interests and training often lie in broader disciplines of linguistics, psychology, sociology, and education. Second language research findings might have a direct application to instructional decisions or provide insights into the learning process that serves as a resource to inform teaching practice. Knowing how languages are learned will help language instructors develop a more innovative and effective way to teach a language and to create the necessary conditions for learners to learn more efficiently and appropriately. The overall aim of this Journal is to provide an opportunity for researchers, second and foreign language educators, and other language practitioners and policy makers to publish and read second language acquisition research that has direct relevance and impact for language teaching. Established in 2016, Instructed Second Language Acquisition, the journal is a forum for reporting and for critical discussion of language research and practice across a wide range of languages and international contexts. It welcomes quantitative and qualitative research to address the role of external manipulation (e.g., instruction, learner self-directed learning, input manipulation) on second language development.

Is Chomsky's Theory of Language Wrong? Pinker Weighs in on Debate

Is Chomsky's Theory of Language Wrong? Pinker Weighs in on Debate | ADQUISICIÓN DE SEGUNDAS LENGUAS-SECOND LANGUAGE ADQUISITION | Scoop.it
Chomsky’s ideas have profoundly affected linguistics and mind-science in general. Critics attacked his theories from the get-go and are still attacking, paradoxically demonstrating his enduring dominance. Some attacks are silly. For example, in his new book A Kingdom of Speech Tom Wolfe asserts that both Darwin and “Noam Charisma” were wrong.
