A Praxis of Task-Based Teaching and Mobile Assisted Language Use: Huw Jarvis

Two of the most significant trends in TESOL over the last twenty years or so are the rise of task-based language teaching (TBLT) and the growth of technology. With TBLT we see a challenging of more traditional structure-based models of delivery, and the increased capacity and mobility of computer desktops, laptops, notebooks and other mobile devices have had an impact on how we work, rest and play–it is all done with and through language, and the language which dominates in a globalised interconnected digital era is English. Little wonder, then, that getting students to do things through language, at times with Computers and Other Mobile Devices (CaOMDs), is an area of ever-growing interest.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Jarvis identifies task-based approaches and technology integration as most notable recent changes in language teaching and learning and suggests ways to combine them effectively.

Late Second Language Learners’ Oral Proficiency - Saito - 2015

"How long does it take for late L2 learners to reach ultimate attainment and how extensively can they improve their L2 oral ability?"


 

"First and foremost, the current results indicated that experience effects were evident for linguistic correlates of comprehensibility rather than accentedness. As learners gain L2 experience, they may prioritize the development of good prosody, optimal speech rate, as well as proper vocabulary and grammar usage (over segmental accuracy and sophisticated use of vocabulary and grammar) for the purpose of achieving successful communication in their private, business, and academic settings. The findings can be well accounted for by an interactionist view, which states that comprehensibility rather than ac- centedness is what learners essentially aim to achieve during their interactions with interlocutors and that comprehensibility is a crucial variable, especially in late SLA (Gass & Mackey, 2006)."

Shona Whyte's insight:

Carefully designed and controlled study of 39 Japanese users of English L2 in Canada showed that the comprehensibility of their speech improved with length of residence, but not listeners' perceptions of its accentedness. Even long-term residents (13 years) were perceived as significantly different from a native-speaker baseline, and analyses of pronunciation, fluency, vocabulary and grammar confirmed the difference.
