"Free online foreign language lessons"

 

Shona Whyte:

Suspicious as usual, I checked out this site.  Not clear who is behind it, but it does seem to be completely free and the sound etc works fine.  I checked English for French beginners (leçon de Anglaise (sic)) - decontextualised behaviourist approach with exercises for listening and repeating, matching phrases with their translation equivalents, and chances to test yourself.  Not my first choice for learning a language, but it may suit some.

Cite-langage : Cartes des parcours

Cite-langage : Cartes des parcours | TELT | Scoop.it
La ressource « Cité Langage – Trajets dans les sciences du langage » a été conçue à l’Université de Lille SHS en réponse à un appel à projets de l’Université Ouverte des Humanités.

Organisée autour d’une matrice de 27 vidéos assorties de questionnaires-amorces, complétée d’un glossaire et de liens externes, son objectif est de faire découvrir ce que sont les sciences du langage à un public de personnes néophytes s’interrogeant sur ce qu’elles recouvrent : lycéen.ne.s à la recherche d’une poursuite d’études post-baccalauréat, étudiant.e.s en réorientation, tout simplement personnes curieuses de découvrir cette discipline, non enseignée au lycée, à titre de culture générale. Elle se veut également un outil de valorisation des recherches menées dans ce champ disciplinaire et une ressource pédagogique pouvant être exploitée en premier cycle universitaire.

Chaque vidéo a une durée d’environ cinq minutes et répond à des questions telles que :
Pourquoi les humains parlent-ils ?
Est-ce que les animaux ont des langues ?
Peut-on localiser une zone du langage dans le cerveau ?
Une langue, comment ça marche ?
Comment fonctionnent les différentes écritures ?
C’est quoi être bilingue ?

Les vidéos, pour lesquelles ont été sollicités des spécialistes des questions abordées, enseignants-chercheurs à l’Université de Lille SHS et dans d’autres Universités françaises, ou chercheurs auprès du CNRS, sont organisées en trajets offrant une cohérence thématique. Chaque vidéo peut toutefois être visionnée de façon indépendante.

Two Versions of Task-Based Language Teaching

Two Versions of Task-Based Language Teaching | TELT | Scoop.it
This is a written report of a talk I gave to members of the SLB last month. There's quite a lot here; it's a bit "staccato" because it's based on the slides I used in the talk; and it doesn't do justice to Mike Long's version of TBLT. Good, positive start, eh! Both the syllabuses presented here are alternatives to…

Dans l’enseignement supérieur, la notion d’un espace pédagogique comme lieu de constitution d’une communauté de confiance demande à être éclairée par des apports théoriques transdisciplinaires, impliquant notamment le

Van der Zwaard: Patterns of (negotiated) interaction during telecollaboration between NSs and advanced NNSs

Dyadic communication between Australian and Dutch participants during a digital task designed as part of a telecollaboration project

The research project focuses on the occurrence of negotiation of meaning (or absence thereof) during one - to - one interaction via two forms of synchronous computer - mediated communication (SCMC): video call (or video call) and instant chat - messaging (written chat).

The studies aim to combine two of the most significant trends in L2 - education: digital technology and task - based language teaching (TBLT). Research into the efficacy of communication through different digital tools within L2 - learning environments is still underdeveloped, although the 21st - century networked society is entering the language classroom and educators are urged to include digital communication in (academic) language acquisition curricula. Negotiation of meaning studies have proven to be a prolific research area, although different claims have been made concer ning occurrence and effect and only recently have investigations started to explore the implications of negotiation of meaning during synchronous computer - mediated com munication. The studies in this book attempt to contribute to this budding area of research.
