Polyglot vs. Translator: Different Takes on Multilingualism

Polyglot vs. Translator: Different Takes on Multilingualism | Languages in the UK | Scoop.it
Not everyone can become a polyglot, so we still need translators -- but the two treat the fact that all humans don't speak the same language very differently.

Pourquoi varier les approches pédagogiques?

Pourquoi varier les approches pédagogiques? | Languages in the UK | Scoop.it

1. La rétention de l’information augmente considérablement lorsque l’enseignant varie ses méthodes pédagogiques.

2. Varier ses approches permet de respecter les différentes caractéristiques des étudiants et de solliciter le développement de leurs différents potentiels.

3. Lorsque les étudiants se sentent interpellés, il y a un impact direct sur leur motivation et sur l’effort fourni pour leur apprentissage.

4. Avec la globalisation des universités, il devient important de rejoindre les gens des différentes cultures et disciplines.

5. Les professions demandent différents types d’intelligence, caractéristiques et traits de personnalité et les enseignants peuvent guider l’étudiant dans le développement de ceux-ci.

Create Authentic Text Based Lessons

Create Authentic Text Based Lessons | Languages in the UK | Scoop.it

I think we all know how potentially motivating authentic materials can be for our students, especially if those materials deal with something current and of direct relevance to our students' interests. The web is abundantly rich in these kinds of materials, but creating lessons based around authentic online materials can be time consuming and complex. There are issues of copyright to deal with, as well as the fact that once we have created our lessons, the text we build them on may disappear. If this is a problem you regularly face, then Lingle could be the answer to your prayers.

Mentira is the first mobile, place-based, augmented reality game for language learning

Mentira is the first mobile, place-based, augmented reality game for language learning | Languages in the UK | Scoop.it

Mentira, a project launched in July 2009, is the first mobile, place-based, augmented reality game explicitly oriented towards the development of language skills in Spanish. It is set in a Spanish-speaking neighborhood in Albuquerque, NM and plays out much like a historical novel in which fact and fiction combine to set the context and social conditions for meaningful interaction (in Spanish) with simulated characters, other players, and local citizens. While playing Mentira, learners must investigate clues and talk to various non-player characters (NPCs) in order to absolve their own family, proving they are not responsible for a murder in a local neighborhood.

Is Twitter the Driving Force Behind Upcoming Educational Change?

Is Twitter the Driving Force Behind Upcoming Educational Change? | Languages in the UK | Scoop.it

Communication is the first step to any substantive change and being able to use advanced tools like Twitter to make connections between related issues within education’s various subsystems allows for meaningful discussion of these issues. In this way, potential solutions can also be explored where no such possibility previously existed.

Facebook for (language) learning. (LLAS workshop at UCL language centre) | Languages in the UK | Scoop.it

"In London, at the UCL Language Centre, the participants of the workshop "Using Facebook for (language) learning" worked all day ( 12-5) on producing practical language immersion techniques to include as activities within FaceBook" says Julien Hamilton-Hart, who maintains a blog called Innovation in Language Teaching and Learning (http://iltl.wordpress.com).

 

He describes activities including:

- Creating a fictitious character’s profile

- Describing a family outing using YouTube videos

- Creating sub-pages to act as content repository pages to a course

- Using polled questions to promote inquisitive learning

- Using Dropbox to create links to activity filesUsing shared Google documents for activity preparation

- Creating a commented video from photos downloaded from the internet using Windows Movie Maker 2.6.

Phonetics: for Students of Modern Languages | LLAS Centre for Languages, Linguistics and Area Studies

Phonetics: for Students of Modern Languages | LLAS Centre for Languages, Linguistics and Area Studies | Languages in the UK | Scoop.it

A textbook on phonetics by Rodney Ball of the University of Southampton.  6 chapters giving overviews and exercises on the vocal tract, vowels, consonants, transcription, and an answer key. 

 

You can download the entire PDF without sound, or individual sections with sound files.  It's all free.

 

Aimed at students of French, Spanish and German, it also seems eminently suited to teachers of EFL, with examples in English.
