Blubbr - Make Youtube Quizzes | TELT | Scoop.it

David Deubelbeiss of English Central and EFL Classroom 2.0 recommends this quiz maker, saying it has the "most potential of any Youtube quiz maker. It has an attractive interface, is well laid out and designed and the library is very accessible.  One downside - it doesn't allow you to edit the quiz after you've produced it (usually the case with just launched sites).  I'm sure they'll work things out"

Shona Whyte's insight:

Many of my undergraduate EFL students are big fans of English Central, so there is certainly an interest in video-based quizzes as an entertaining form of self-study.

Celui-ci sera consacré au « lexique dans les langues de spécialité ».

Is task-based language teaching just a variation on presentation-practice-production?

Is task-based language teaching just a variation on presentation-practice-production? | TELT | Scoop.it
Many language teachers are interested in the question of what makes a task a task. Pre-service teachers are often under pressure to conform to some see as the hegemony of task-based language teaching (TBLT) which they feel is imposed on teachers by the Common European Reference framework (CER). They want to know whether their textbook…

The Effects of Mode and Task Complexity on Second Language Production

The Effects of Mode and Task Complexity on Second Language Production | TELT | Scoop.it

"Taking a psycholinguistic orientation within task‐based language teaching scholarship, this study investigated the effects of mode (oral vs. written) and task complexity on second language (L2) performance ..."


Among other detailed results, the study found that


1. L2 learners can draw on their interlanguage variably and display different linguistic behaviors depending on the mode (oral or written) in which a task is performed. Our participants spent more time and used more complex syntax as well as more varied vocabulary when they performed the task in writing. Mode also influenced propositional complexity, as speakers produced more idea units overall, but writers employed extended idea units to a higher degree. These findings provided empirical evidence for the theoretical prediction that the oral and written modes offer different opportunities for language practice and development, and, consequently, mode can constitute a task design feature that may contribute to the development of distinct L2 competencies


2. Task complexity had different effects in writing and in speech. Overall, we found that (a) task complexity effects were more noticeable in writing in the areas of propositional complexity, accuracy, and time on task, and (b) increases in task demands had similar effects on the linguistic complexity in both modes. Thus, we found that both writers’ and speakers’ productions were more syntactically complex overall (see also Tavakoli, 2014) and exhibited more sophisticated vocabulary in the complex version of the task, compared to the simple version.


3. Increases in task demands enhanced certain aspects of L2 performance in both modes, which allowed us to conclude that task complexity constitutes an important task variable that can influence L2 performance and subsequent learning.

Shona Whyte's insight:
Learners performed simple or complex versions of task in spoken or written mode, and productions were analysed using a variety of complexity and accuracy measures. The article is open access at present and you can even see the task (pictured)

Instructed Second Language Acquisition

Instructed Second Language Acquisition is a peer-reviewed Journal that, twice a year, publishes research with a number of implications for language instruction. Second language acquisition is a rich and varied enterprise, carried out by researchers, whose interests and training often lie in broader disciplines of linguistics, psychology, sociology, and education. Second language research findings might have a direct application to instructional decisions or provide insights into the learning process that serves as a resource to inform teaching practice. Knowing how languages are learned will help language instructors develop a more innovative and effective way to teach a language and to create the necessary conditions for learners to learn more efficiently and appropriately. The overall aim of this Journal is to provide an opportunity for researchers, second and foreign language educators, and other language practitioners and policy makers to publish and read second language acquisition research that has direct relevance and impact for language teaching. Established in 2016, Instructed Second Language Acquisition, the journal is a forum for reporting and for critical discussion of language research and practice across a wide range of languages and international contexts. It welcomes quantitative and qualitative research to address the role of external manipulation (e.g., instruction, learner self-directed learning, input manipulation) on second language development.

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…
