L2 Learning, Teaching and Assessment

L2 Learning, Teaching and Assessment | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it
This book explores second language (L2) learning, teaching and assessment from a comprehensible input (CI) perspective. This focus on the role of input is important for deepening our understanding of interactions between the learner, teacher and the environment as well as of the nature of the learning, teaching and assessment processes. The book takes a blended approach that promotes the intertwining of theory, research and practice in L2 pedagogy and assessment and aims to address the commonly used concept of CI and its role in L2 education. Content includes a comprehensive discussion of the conceptual foundation of CI; a multimodal and dynamic interpretation of CI from numerous perspectives; a critical discussion of well-known L2 acquisition theories and research; a practical examination of the role of multimodal forms of CI in L2 pedagogy; an analytical review of factors to be considered when modifying CI for pedagogical purposes in different settings and an overview of CI in L2 assessment. It will be of interest to students in the fields of L2 learning, teaching and assessment, teachers in second/foreign language settings and researchers of SLA and teacher education.

Advanced Proficiency and Exceptional Ability in Second Languages

Advanced Proficiency and Exceptional Ability in Second Languages | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it
While the literature on second language acquisition and use is overwhelmingly rich with respect to initial and intermediate stages of development, present knowledge of levels of ultimate attainment that are equal or close to that if native speakers has so far not been presented in a coherent manner. This is what the present volume aims to achieve. In addition to chapters that summarize what is currently known about the grammatical, lexical, and discourse features that continue to exhibit instability at the most advanced levels of second language development, the volume presents overviews of the incipient research on two unique learner populations, polyglots and employees in international call centres. Polyglots, defined as language users who are proficient in six or more second languages, may be considered second language learners par excellence. Call centre employees in economically less developed parts of the world are intriguing in how they cope with the high language proficiency requirements of their job. In conclusion, this book is relevant for all readers - both professionals and students - interested in the development of second language theory. For language teachers, the book provides insights that are profitable in classrooms for advanced learners.

Break the Rules to Succeed

Break the Rules to Succeed | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it
The DRC (Democratic Republic of Congo) is like how I imagine the American frontier was, back in the early 1800s. It’s not entirely lawless, of course, but the further into the jungle you go, the less “the law” seems to matter. Even in the big cities, the rules only seem to exist to benefit the rich and powerful. To thrive in a place like that, you have to learn to play fast and loose. You have to learn to improvise. You quickly realize that rules are an entirely human construction, with no bearing on the natural world – and the sooner you figure that out and take advantage of it, the better you’ll manage. If you wait and hope for the rules to protect you like some kind of safety net, you’re going to find out the net has some rather large holes.

As a language learner, this was tough for me to deal with.

Language Teaching and the Older Adult

Language Teaching and the Older Adult | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it
The aging of the population and the increasing number of older adults pursuing foreign language courses call for a greater understanding of the ways in which these individuals learn foreign languages. This book offers a pioneering contribution to the literature on foreign language education for older adults (aged 60 and over), termed foreign language geragogy. It details an empirical, multidisciplinary study on Japanese older learners of Spanish and focuses on the influence of learning experiences on vocabulary learning strategy use. It discusses the constraints that preconceptions impose on learners, researchers, instructors and administrators, and it offers a set of practical recommendations for foreign language activities for elderly individuals. It also introduces the notion of ‘learner re-training’, an instructional mechanism that contributes to older learners' self-acknowledgment and autonomy development in foreign language learning. The book is directed at teachers and trainee teachers of foreign languages to older adults, and also at education professionals and researchers in the field of foreign language learning in general.

Mediación lingüística y enseñanza de español/LE - Giuseppe Trovato

Mediación lingüística y enseñanza de español/LE - Giuseppe Trovato | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it
El fenómeno de la globalización –entendido como el conjunto de tendencias y dinámicas económicas, sociales y culturales que tienden a reducir las distancias entre el Norte y el Sur, el Este y el Oeste de nuestro planeta– lleva ya más de una década afectando nuestras vidas y es indudable que ha tenido muchos efectos positivos sobre nuestros quehaceres cotidianos. Entre dichos efectos, uno delos más emblemáticos está estrechamente relacionado con el plano de la comunicación. En efecto, la globalización ha impuesto nuevos modelos y patrones de comunicación e interacción entre los seres humanos y muchas de las cosas que conseguimos hacer hoy en día dándole a un ratón, hubieran resultado imposibles hace una o dos décadas. Este cambio de paradigma es hoy en día una realidad y nos ha empujado –como seres humanos– a volver a plantearnos los conceptos de comunicación e interacción, especialmente al enfrentarnos a la “otredad”, esto es, a códigos lingüísticos y culturales distintos a los nuestros. Al hilo de lo anterior, este volumen se plantea una reflexión teórico-práctica en torno al concepto de mediación lingüística y pretende aportar algunas orientaciones metodológicas a la hora de llevar la mediación al aula de lenguas extranjeras.

Evidence Rebuts Chomsky's Theory of Language Learning

Evidence Rebuts Chomsky's Theory of Language Learning | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it
The idea that we have brains hardwired with a mental template for learning grammar—famously espoused by Noam Chomsky of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology—has dominated linguistics for almost half a century. Recently, though, cognitive scientists and linguists have abandoned Chomsky’s “universal grammar” theory in droves because of new research examining many different languages—and the way young children learn to understand and speak the tongues of their communities. That work fails to support Chomsky’s assertions.

Forms of Address in the Spanish of the Americas

Forms of Address in the Spanish of the Americas | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it

In the growing field of address research, Spanish emerges as one of the most complex Indo European languages. Firstly, it presents second person variation in its nominal, pronominal, and verbal systems. Moreover, several Spanish varieties have more than two address variants, which compete and mix in intricate ways. Forms of Address in the Spanish of the Americas showcases current research into this unique linguistic situation, by presenting the original research of twelve scholars from a variety of theoretical and methodological perspectives. The articles cover diachronic change and regional variation, pragmatics, dialect contact, attitudes, and identity. The contributions are contextualized through an introduction and the responses of three established experts, while a conclusion delineates a research agenda for the future. This collection in English is meant to reach scholars beyond the confines of Hispanic linguistics. It should be of interest to Romance linguists and specialists on second person variation across languages.

Dialogic Pedagogy

Dialogic Pedagogy | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it
This book provides a wide-ranging and in-depth theoretical perspective on dialogue in teaching. It explores the philosophy of dialogism as a social theory of language and explains its importance in teaching and learning. Departing from the more traditional teacher-led mode of teacher–student communication, the dialogic approach is more egalitarian and focuses on the discourse exchange between the parties. Authors explore connections between dialogic pedagogy and sociocultural learning theory, and argue that dialogic interaction between teacher and learners is vital if instruction is to lead to cognitive development. The book also presents prosody as a critical resource for understanding between teachers and students, and includes some of the first empirical studies of speech prosody in classroom discourse.

Input destacado y adquisición de la gramática - Claudia R. Fernández

Input destacado y adquisición de la gramática - Claudia R. Fernández | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it
El papel del input en el aprendizaje de una segunda lengua es de vital importancia y a que constituye la materia prima esencial en la creación y desarrollo de un sistema lingüístico. En este libro se explica lo que es (y lo que no es) el input y cómo es percibido por los humanos. En base a esto, se discute la importancia de las intervenciones pedagógicas para que el input se destaque o se ilumine y pueda ser eventualmente integrado en el sistema lingüístico del estudiante de ELE. En particular, se presentan de manera sintetizada los principios teóricos y la evidencia empírica de cuatro técnicas de enseñanza basadas en input para la adquisición de la gramática: (1) realce del texto, (2) instrucción del procesamiento, (3) ciclos de input y output y (4) tareas de sensibilización gramatical. También se ofrecen las pautas para su desarrollo, así como ejemplos que sirven de muestra para que el docente los implemente o adapte en su práctica pedagógica.

Por muchos años he usado las wikis de Wikispaces con mis grupos de alumnos que estudian en la modalidad presencial en una universidad brasileña para ser futuros profesores de español. Antes, yo usaba esas wikis en su versión clásica y abierta para todos, pero en los dos últimos semestres he optado por la versión classroom (sala de aulas), que facilita en cierta medida la organización de las actividades realizadas durante el curso al imprimirle un cierto orden cronológico vertical al desorden que tienden a generar las tecnologías con flujo de comunicación predominantemente horizontal, como es este caso.

Contemporary Second Language Assessment

Contemporary Second Language Assessment | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it

Includes chapters on key aspects of second language assessment such as test construct, diagnosis, exam design, and the growing range of public policy, social and ethical issues. Each of the contributors is an expert in their area; some are established names while others are talented newcomers to the field.
The chapters present new research or perspectives on traditional concerns such as test quality; fairness and bias; the testing of different language skills; the needs of different groups of examinees, including English language learners who need to take content tests in English; and the use of language assessments for gate-keeping purposes. The volume demonstrates how language assessment is informed by and engages with neighbouring areas of applied linguistics such as technology and language corpora.
