Learner Language: The Center for Advanced Research on Language Acquisition (CARLA)

Learner Language: The Center for Advanced Research on Language Acquisition (CARLA) | TELT | Scoop.it

Learn how to analyze learner language from five different perspectives, and consider ways you can support its development in the classroom. The site showcases video recordings of learners using Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Persian in unrehearsed interaction. Multimedia activities guide language teachers to study and reflect on learner language and how to nurture its development.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Interesting units on "ways of seeing learner language" to guide trainee teachers/researchers in the analysis of learner productions.

Philosophical Investigations for Applied Linguistics: Reading list to accompany Block's "Social Turn" in SLA (2003)

Philosophical Investigations for Applied Linguistics: Reading list to accompany Block's "Social Turn" in SLA (2003) | TELT | Scoop.it

@yosukeyanase This post is to help students in my Intensive Course "Language and Society" (Aug 27 - 30, 2012) who will read the following book. As I believe that Abstracts of academic papers belong to the public domain of the web, I paste abstracts of the papers that are cited in or related to the arguments in the book.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Great list from the "paradigm wars" and beyond.  If anyone has Gregg's 1990 Applied Linguistics paper on the variable competence model and why it isn't (wonder what line he's going to take here, huh?) I'd love a look to situate that great quote about "toilers in the variable vineyards."

"Learner language is the constantly changing ability students have to communicate as they learn a new language. It provides an index of students progress, allowing teachers to determine how to best educate them. By analyzing examples of learner language, students develop skills to address it when they are teaching."
