Learning French from Spanish and Spanish from French | Georgetown University Press

Learning French from Spanish and Spanish from French | Georgetown University Press | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it
Learning French from Spanish and Spanish from French provides adult English speakers who have learned either Spanish or French as a second language with the tools to learn the other as a third language. Research in the growing fields of third-language acquisition and multilingualism documents how successful language learners intuitively build on their existing knowledge as they learn a new language. In this vein, Learning French from Spanish and Spanish from French takes advantage of the fact that learners with intermediate proficiency in a second language are used to thinking consciously about language, know themselves as language learners, and can capitalize on what they know about one language to understand the other. With chapters conveniently organized by grammatical concept and including supplementary resources such as exercises, parallel reading texts, and audio files, this book will benefit students, travelers, and budding multilinguals alike.

Spanish as a heritage language in the Netherlands

Spanish as a heritage language in the Netherlands | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it

There are more than 100,000 people in the Netherlands born in a Spanish speaking country, or with at least one parent born there. A large part of them fits the definition of heritage speaker: persons exposed to a heritage language in a naturalistic setting from birth, simultaneously or subsequently exposed intensively to another language in childhood, and with varying degrees of proficiency in the heritage language.
This dissertation investigates the Spanish spoken as a heritage language by members of a small but tight-knit subgroup: the first and second generation of Chileans in the Netherlands. This Dutch-Spanish bilingual community was studied from a sociolinguistic perspective, and then linguistically on the basis of 60 hours of recordings. These were gathered through visual elicitation and personal interviews with 40 participants - 24 bilinguals and a control group of 16 monolingual homeland speakers in Chile.
The book contains studies on differential object marking, verbal mood, progressive constructions, grammatical gender, dative constructions, chilenismos, pattern replication, matter replication and fluency, uncovering subtle divergences from the Spanish in the homeland and bringing new insights to the study of bilingual Spanish.

Language for Specific Purposes

Language for Specific Purposes | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it
In the United States today there is lively discussion, both among educators and employers, about the best way to prepare students with high-level language and cross-cultural communication proficiency that will serve them both professionally and personally in the global environment of the twenty-first century. At the same time, courses in business language and medical language have become more popular among students. Language for Specific Purposes (LSP), which encompasses these kinds of courses, responds to this discussion and provides curricular models for language programs that build practical language skills specific to a profession or field. Contributions in the book reinforce those models with national survey results, demonstrating the demand for and benefits of LSP instruction.

Introducing Language and Cognition

Introducing Language and Cognition | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it
In this accessible introduction, Mike Sharwood Smith provides a working model or 'map' of the mind, with language as its centrepiece. Drawing on cutting-edge research across linguistics, psychology and neuroscience, it allows students to quickly grasp how each separate aspect of the mind's operations can be related. This 'big picture' view includes the way the mind makes, stores and loses memories of all kinds as well how its various 'expert systems' combine and collaborate to solve, typically beyond our conscious awareness, the myriad of tasks we are faced with every minute and millisecond of our existence. The book also focuses on language, that is, the mind of monolingual, bilingual and multilingual speakers. It will be of interest to all students wishing to learn more about the complex relationship between language - one of the most important ways in which we define ourselves as human - and the mind.

Language Acquisition Beyond Parameters

Language Acquisition Beyond Parameters | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it

The chapters in this volume take different approaches to the exploration of language acquisition processes in various populations (monolingual and bilingual first language acquisition, L2 acquisition) and address issues in syntax, morphology, pragmatics, language processing and interface phenomena. This volume is a tribute to Juana M. Liceras’ fundamental and enduring contribution to the field of Spanish Second Language Acquisition (SLA). All the chapters in the volume are linked to or inspired by Juana’s extensive body of work, and, like Juana’s research, they all stand at the crossroads of formal and experimental linguistics. Together, the studies presented in this volume are a reflection of Juana’s impact both as a mentor and as a collaborative researcher while at the same time showcasing current trends and new directions in the field of generative SLA.

Tensions en didactique des langues

Tensions en didactique des langues | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it

Qu’il s’agisse des mobilités étudiantes, des migrations de population, des exportations de modèles d’enseignement et de manuels, de formation à distance des professeurs, etc. la didactique des langues contribue aux processus des échanges internationaux. L’école, dans toutes ses dimensions curriculaires, y joue un rôle déterminant. Les relations complexes entre langues secondes et langues nationales y sont souvent des moteurs de changement et de contradiction. Cet ouvrage entend contribuer à une meilleure compréhension des phénomènes liés à la synchronie du double processus de mondialisation et de contextualisation des méthodologies, et du rôle de la didactique des langues dans diverses cultures et contextes éducatifs. Il s’agit ainsi de comprendre les contradictions et les continuités observables au niveau des politiques linguistiques et éducatives ainsi que les décalages avec les approches scientifiques et méthodologiques qui sont préconisées. La question d’une culture didactique de type « universel », telle que peut la proposer de manière théorique le CECRL, se repose donc ici.

The Importance of Self-Efficacy for Language Learners

The Importance of Self-Efficacy for Language Learners | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it
One of the most powerful language learning tools is not something you can find in a book or online, it’s internal. Self-efficacy is a person’s belief about their own ability perform to a certain level or accomplish a task. First described by psychologist Albert Bandura, self-efficacy is not based on external influence or past experiences, but on self-perception. Perceived self-efficacy is beneficial through all of life’s stages—adolescence, parenthood, job hunting, etc.—including the journey to learn a new language.

An Introduction to Linguistics and Language Studies 

An Introduction to Linguistics and Language Studies  | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it
The second edition of this popular textbook provides readers with a foundation in methods for analysing and understanding language from various theoretical perspectives within linguistics and language studies. Its novel approach introduces systemic functional linguistics, text and discourse analysis, and formal approaches to linguistics. It demonstrates applications of these approaches to reveal how we use language in society, how our brains process language, and how we learn language.

The main language focused on is English, while other languages are also drawn on to illustrate the principles, models and theories. Learning outcomes, exercises (with answer key), ideas for project work, and questions for reflection are provided throughout. A final chapter gathers explanations of various fields of practice within linguistics, written by linguists from around the world.

The aim of this book is to present a comprehensive picture of the current state of Spanish learner corpus research (SLCR), which makes it unique, since no other monograph has focused on collecting research dealing with learner corpora of any language other than English. In addition to an introductory appraisal of current SLCR, as well as a wake-up call reminding us that learner corpus design still needs to be improved, this volume features a selection of original studies ranging from general issues concerning learner corpora compilation to more specific aspects such as phonetic, lexical, grammatical and pragmatic features of the interlanguage of learners of Spanish, as reflected in corpus data. This volume will undoubtedly be of significant interest to researchers involved in corpus linguistics, second language acquisition research, as well as to professionals in the field of Spanish as a second language, including teachers, and creators and publishers of teaching materials.
