Enhancing noticing skills for oral production: Guichon & Cohen 2012

Enhancing noticing skills for oral production: Guichon & Cohen 2012 | TELT | Scoop.it

The central issue of the pilot study on which this article is based concerns the potential role of metacognition in the development of second language (L2) competence, specifically when L2 learners are confronted with their own videoed oral performance. An experiment was carried out at a French university with a group of first-year non-specialist undergraduate learners of English (N=12). The collected data for this research are comprised of (1) the filmed performance of learners carrying out an oral task in English, and (2) the filmed interview in French of the same participants engaged in metacognitive reflection upon samples of their own performance. The study thus endeavours to determine the potential of self-confrontation, represented here by retrospective interviews of learners based on their own video-recorded language performance, as a way to develop noticing skills in L2.

Shona Whyte's insight:
 La question centrale qui sous-tend cette étude pilote concerne le rôle potentiel joué par la métacognition dans le développement des compétences langagières, plus particulièrement quand des apprenants de L2 sont confrontés aux traces filmées de leur propre performance orale. Une expérimentation a été menée dans une université française avec un groupe de 12 étudiants de première année du secteur LANSAD. Les données recueillies comprennent (1) la performance filmée d’apprenants en train de mener à bien une tâche de production orale en anglais, et (2) l’entretien filmé des mêmes participants alors qu’ils sont engagés dans une réflexion métacognitive en français sur des échantillons de leur propre performance. Cette étude s’efforce donc de déterminer le potentiel de l’auto-confrontation, définie ici comme un entretien rétrospectif confrontant des apprenants à des traces filmées de leur propre performance langagière, pour développer des compétences de repérage en L2.

During the webinar you will learn about ways to help learners negotiate and work with useful language that can be found in authentic EAP texts.

Topic:

Focusing on language in EAP with Craig Thaine

Date:

January 21st 2014

Time:

15:00 GMT

Shona Whyte's insight:

Universal Grammar: a scientific idea ready for retirement

Universal Grammar: a scientific idea ready for retirement | TELT | Scoop.it

It's time to retire Universal Grammar. It had a good run, but there's nothing much it can bring us now in terms of what we want to know about human language.

Benjamin Bergen argues that Chomsky's big idea has run its course.

Son étendue pédagogique est intéressante dans la mesure où l'utilisation du TBI est ludique. Il s'agit d'enseigner tout en s'amusant "Ensenar deileitando". Ainsi les élèves apprennent mieux et plus vite.

PEPS-C: Profiling elements of prosodic systems

PEPS-C: Profiling elements of prosodic systems | TELT | Scoop.it

A group of researchers at Queen Margaret University College (Edinburgh) have developed a way of assessing prosody using computer-based tasks.
“Profiling Elements of Prosodic Systems - Children” (PEPS-C) was developed from a procedure for assessing prosody in adults. The test is useful for assessing any individual from 5 years of age who is suspected of having an expressive and/or receptive prosodic disorder. It can be used by Speech and Language Therapists and other related professionals.
