Shona Whyte's insight:

Geoff Jordan says: "You don’t need an MA to be a good EFL teacher. I doubt, frankly, that you even need a degree. You should do an MA if you’re intellectually curious, if you want to hone your thinking, if you want to learn more about how to think straight, or if you want to go on to do a doctorate."

Qu’est-ce qui s’est passé ? Des questions stéréotypées chez les apprenants du français

Qu’est-ce qui s’est passé ? Des questions stéréotypées chez les apprenants du français | TELT | Scoop.it
Despite a good command of the grammar and the pronunciation of one’s second language, a non-native speaker often remains identifiable by his way of formulating his utterances, which do not necessarily correspond to those formulations found to be natural by native speakers of his new language. Difficulties associated with what Bardovi-Harlig (2009) called conventional expressions are most particularly found in the area of pragmatics, and these difficulties have attracted more and more interest from researchers in second language acquisition. The current article contributes to this research trend with an examination of a corpus constiting of responses to a discourse completion task completed by native speakers of French and Anglophone learners of French, with the goal of identifying those linguistic sequences preferred by the two groups in their realization of the speech act of questionning. The results reveal important differences between the natives’ and nonnatives’ use of linguistic stereotypes in formulating questions. In particular, the nonnatives tend to establish a one-to-one association between a linguistic string and a type of question.

Shona Whyte's insight:
Survey by Perez Paredes and colleagues suggests  FL teachers in UK and Spain support technology mediated learning in theory more than in practice, particularly with respect to mobile devices and more sophisticated corpus tools
