Testing Dutch FL at B1 vs B2: Hulstijn et al 2012

This study examines the associations between the speaking proficiency of 181 adult learners of Dutch as a second language and their linguistic competences. Performance in eight speaking tasks was rated on a scale of communicative adequacy. After extrapolation of these ratings to the Overall Oral Production scale of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) (Council of Europe, 2001), 80 and 30 participants (on average per speaking task) were found to be, respectively, at the B1 and B2 levels of this scale. The following linguistic competences were tapped with non-communicative tasks: productive vocabulary knowledge, productive knowledge of grammar, speed of lexical retrieval, speed of articulation, speed of sentence building, and pronunciation skills. Discriminant analyses showed that all linguistic competences, except speed of articulation, discriminated participants at the two levels of oral production. Subsequent comparisons showed that the distance between B1ers and B2ers was smaller in knowledge of high-frequency words than in knowledge of medium- and low-frequency words. Extrapolation from scores on the vocabulary test yielded estimations of productive vocabularies of, on average, 4000 and 7000 words for B1ers and B2ers, respectively. The grammar test assessed grammatical knowledge in 10 domains. B2ers were found to outperform B1ers on all parts of the test. Thus, the differences in lexical and grammatical knowledge of B1ers and B2ers appear to be a matter of degree, rather than a matter of category or domain. The paper ends with a research agenda for a linguistic underpinning of the CEFR.

The effectiveness of post-reading word-focused activities and their associations with working memory

The effectiveness of post-reading word-focused activities and their associations with working memory | TELT | Scoop.it
The study investigates the effects of post-reading word-focused activities on vocabulary acquisition and the extent to which the effects are mediated by learners' working memory. Eighty-one university students were assigned to three experimental groups (Gap-fill, Sentence-writing, Comprehension-only) and a Control group. After completing a reading comprehension task, the Gap-fill and Sentence-writing groups completed word-focused activities, and the Comprehension-only group answered an essay question without receiving any form-focused instruction; the Control group only completed the tests. The Vocabulary Knowledge Scale developed by Paribakht and Wesche (1997) was employed to measure treatment effects, and a reading span test was used to measure the learners’ working memory capacities. The results show that on the immediate post-test, the Sentence-writing group performed the best, followed by Gap-fill, Comprehension-only, and Control. On the delayed post-test, the Sentence writing and Gap-fill groups equally outperformed the two other groups. Linear regression analysis revealed that working memory significantly predicted the gain scores of the Comprehension-only and the Gap-fill groups on the immediate post-test. Our results partially confirm the Task Involvement Load Hypothesis and suggest an interaction between working memory and the effects of different types of vocabulary instruction.Empty description

Le français en contextes : Approches didactiques, linguistiques et acquisitionnelles

Le français en contextes : Approches didactiques, linguistiques et acquisitionnelles | TELT | Scoop.it
Organisés en trois sections (FLE et enseignement ; études linguistiques ; maîtrise et acquisition de la langue), les neuf articles qui forment ce volume ont en commun de se soucier de ce que la langue, lorsqu’elle est considérée à partir d’approches ou de données mettant en avant l’importance du contexte (défini de façons différentes), est loin d’être un objet dont les contours sont clairement identifiés : entre différentes considérations théoriques ou analytiques, face à la réalité du terrain, on voit ainsi se dégager un champ offrant de multiples approches et réflexions. Ce volume, à travers les articles qui le composent, constitue une contribution riche et variée sur la question de l’enseignement-apprentissage du français en contexte(s).
