Learning Theory & SLA: undergraduate course

Learning Theory & SLA: undergraduate course | TELT | Scoop.it

 This course investigates the learning of foreign, or second, languages from four different perspectives, using an online e-learning resource to explore behaviourism, cognitivism, constructivism and socio-constructivism.

 

The course presents each theory in terms of general learning, then as it applies to language, including major figures and key concepts for each.

Pronunciation of English as a lingua franca

Pronunciation of English as a lingua franca | TELT | Scoop.it
Thanks to everyone who joined us in London yesterday for our seminar, the last in the 2013-14 series hosted by the British Council–and thanks also to those who watched online!
Shona Whyte's insight:

"Approximately 80% of interaction in English worldwide takes place with no native speaker present (Beneke, 1991). It is no longer realistic to assume a goal of native-like pronunciation for all learners."
