Extensive Watching: David Deubelbeiss blog post

Extensive Watching: David Deubelbeiss blog post | TELT |

“Extensive Watching“. I’d like to outline this important concept for language learning here and get your own feedback, opinion, thoughts. (and this compliments what I’ve also termed, “Narrow Watching“.

Shona Whyte's insight:

My colleague Geoff Sockett at the University of Strasbourg has been looking at this as part of informal learning  Interesting and important topic - what are learners getting out of this type of exposure to English, and is there a role for teaching to help them get more?

TEFL Glossary - EFL CLASSROOM 2.0 | TELT |

Academic language: language used in the learning of academic subject matter in formal schooling context; aspects of language strongly associated with literacy and academic achievement, including specific academic terms or technical language, and speech registers related to each field of study


Accent: This can mean word stress - control has the accent on the second syllable but we use it to mean the pronunciation used by some speakers - a regional or class accent

Shona Whyte's insight:

A pretty comprehensive list of terms from general education and language teaching methodology, particularly communicative and task-based language teaching.

Thanks for sharing Shona, in the common weeks hope to cross reference a lot of the terms

I saw you mentioned that, but not quite sure what you meant - linking to other parts of your site, or to other websites?
