The power of noticing in second language acquisition

The power of noticing in second language acquisition | Tech in teaching | Scoop.it

Shona Whyte:

"What is attention, and what role does it play in foreign language learning? That’s the question that this little language note will explore," says Gavin, graduate students in a language-related field at the University of Hawai'i.  

 

After reviewing some of the research on noticing in second language acquisition (Schmidt) and examining four key ideas, he concludes:

"Learning another language exercises our attention brain muscles. And learning to achieve a higher quality of attention in our daily life through daily language exercise can’t be a bad thing…right?"

 

Interesting for teachers as an argument to encourage language learners, but also for information about the key concept of noticing.
