Beyond Gap Fills. Using songs to learn a language. Why, how and which?

Beyond Gap Fills. Using songs to learn a language. Why, how and which? | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it
At the beginning of this year, I was surprised to find out that many of my students, especially adults, stated in the Needs Analysis that they wanted to use songs. I must admit that I’m used to using songs in the YL classroom all the time (especially clapping games -  my personal favourite!) but I…

Léxico disponible de los estudiantes de español como lengua extranjera en las universidades andaluzas

Léxico disponible de los estudiantes de español como lengua extranjera en las universidades andaluzas | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it
Esta obra contribuye al desarrollo de los trabajos sobre disponibilidad léxica desde dos perspectivas: por un lado, recoge y analiza el léxico disponible de una amplia muestra de estudiantes de español como lengua extranjera, de diversas lenguas maternas, con un detallado estudio estadístico sobre las variables particulares que afectan a esta población. Para ello introduce toda una serie de innovaciones metodológicas con respecto a trabajos sobre disponibilidad léxica realizados en hablantes nativos, fundamentalmente la selección de los centros de interés y de los factores que afectan a la productividad léxica. Por otro lado, se centra en la vertiente semántica de estos estudios mediante el análisis de las relaciones léxicas y las relaciones "significativas" que se dan dentro de los centros de interés, observando su frecuencia y la naturaleza de estas conexiones semánticas.
Se trata, por tanto, de una monografía que se inserta dentro de una tradición ya amplia de trabajos sobre léxico disponible, pero muy original dado que, por un lado, no se centra en la lengua materna, sino en el español como lengua extranjera, objeto de estudio al que se adapta la metodología empleada, y, por otro, se complementa el análisis cuantitativo con el estudio del concepto de centro de interés desde el punto de vista de las relaciones que se establecen en su interior.

Conversation Analysis

Conversation Analysis | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it
We live our lives in conversation, building families, societies and civilisations. In over seven thousand languages across the world, the basic infrastructure by which we communicate remains the same. This is the first ever book-length linguistic introduction to conversation analysis (CA), the field that has done more than any other to illuminate the mechanics of interaction. Starting by locating CA by reference to a number of cognate disciplines investigating language in use, it provides an overview of the origins and methodology of CA. By using conversational data from a range of languages, it examines the basic apparatus of sequence organisation: turn-taking, preference, identity construction and repair. As the basis for these investigations, the book uses the twin analytic resources of action and sequence to throw new light on the origins and nature of language use.

Cambridge Scholars Publishing. Melodies, Rhythm and Cognition in Foreign Language Learning

Cambridge Scholars Publishing. Melodies, Rhythm and Cognition in Foreign Language Learning | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it

Melodies, Rhythm and Cognition in Foreign Language Learning is a collection of essays reflecting on the relationship between language and music, two unique, innate human capacities. This book provides a clear explanation of the centrality of melodies and rhythm to foreign language learning acquisition. The interplay between language music brings to applied linguists inquiries into the nature and function of speech melodies, the role of prosody and the descriptions of rhythmical patterns in verbal behaviour. Musical students seem to be better equipped for language learning, although melodies and rhythm can benefit all types of students at any age. In fact, in this book melodies and rhythm are considered to be a springboard for the enhancement of the learning of foreign languages.

L2 Learning, Teaching and Assessment

L2 Learning, Teaching and Assessment | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it
This book explores second language (L2) learning, teaching and assessment from a comprehensible input (CI) perspective. This focus on the role of input is important for deepening our understanding of interactions between the learner, teacher and the environment as well as of the nature of the learning, teaching and assessment processes. The book takes a blended approach that promotes the intertwining of theory, research and practice in L2 pedagogy and assessment and aims to address the commonly used concept of CI and its role in L2 education. Content includes a comprehensive discussion of the conceptual foundation of CI; a multimodal and dynamic interpretation of CI from numerous perspectives; a critical discussion of well-known L2 acquisition theories and research; a practical examination of the role of multimodal forms of CI in L2 pedagogy; an analytical review of factors to be considered when modifying CI for pedagogical purposes in different settings and an overview of CI in L2 assessment. It will be of interest to students in the fields of L2 learning, teaching and assessment, teachers in second/foreign language settings and researchers of SLA and teacher education.

Advanced Proficiency and Exceptional Ability in Second Languages

Advanced Proficiency and Exceptional Ability in Second Languages | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it
While the literature on second language acquisition and use is overwhelmingly rich with respect to initial and intermediate stages of development, present knowledge of levels of ultimate attainment that are equal or close to that if native speakers has so far not been presented in a coherent manner. This is what the present volume aims to achieve. In addition to chapters that summarize what is currently known about the grammatical, lexical, and discourse features that continue to exhibit instability at the most advanced levels of second language development, the volume presents overviews of the incipient research on two unique learner populations, polyglots and employees in international call centres. Polyglots, defined as language users who are proficient in six or more second languages, may be considered second language learners par excellence. Call centre employees in economically less developed parts of the world are intriguing in how they cope with the high language proficiency requirements of their job. In conclusion, this book is relevant for all readers - both professionals and students - interested in the development of second language theory. For language teachers, the book provides insights that are profitable in classrooms for advanced learners.

Break the Rules to Succeed

Break the Rules to Succeed | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it
The DRC (Democratic Republic of Congo) is like how I imagine the American frontier was, back in the early 1800s. It’s not entirely lawless, of course, but the further into the jungle you go, the less “the law” seems to matter. Even in the big cities, the rules only seem to exist to benefit the rich and powerful. To thrive in a place like that, you have to learn to play fast and loose. You have to learn to improvise. You quickly realize that rules are an entirely human construction, with no bearing on the natural world – and the sooner you figure that out and take advantage of it, the better you’ll manage. If you wait and hope for the rules to protect you like some kind of safety net, you’re going to find out the net has some rather large holes.

As a language learner, this was tough for me to deal with.

Tools for Researching Vocabulary 

Tools for Researching Vocabulary  | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it
This book introduces an innovative collection of easy-to-use computer programs that have been developed to measure and model vocabulary knowledge. The book aims to help researchers discover new instruments for lexical analysis, and provides a theoretical framework in which studies with such tools could be conducted. Each of the programs comes with a short manual explaining how to use the program, an example of a published paper that uses the program and a set of questions that readers can develop into proper projects. The programs can be used in real research projects and have the potential to break new ground for research in L2 vocabulary acquisition. The book will be of great use to final year undergraduates and masters students in applied linguistics, second language acquisition, psycholinguistics and language testing and to PhD students doing research methods courses.

Language for Specific Purposes Research and Translation across Cultures and Media

This volume brings together work by both well-known scholars and emerging researchers in the various areas of Language for Specific Purposes (LSP), such as political, legal, medical, and business discourse. The volume is divided into three parts in order to align rather than separate three different but related aspects of LSP: namely, translation, linguistic research, and domain specific communication on the web. Underlying all the contributions here is the growing awareness of the ever-increasing multiformity of specialised communication and the ever-wider social implications of the communicative situations in which it is embedded, especially where it involves the need to move across languages, cultures and modes, as in translation and interpreting. The contributions consistently bear witness to the need to review received notions, pose new questions, and explore fresh perspectives. The picture that emerges is one of extreme complexity, in which researchers into specifically linguistic aspects of LSPs and their translation across languages and media declare their awareness of the pressing need to come to terms with a wide range of social, pragmatic, intercultural and political factors, above and beyond socio-technical knowledge of the domains under investigation.

Evidence Rebuts Chomsky's Theory of Language Learning

Evidence Rebuts Chomsky's Theory of Language Learning | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it
The idea that we have brains hardwired with a mental template for learning grammar—famously espoused by Noam Chomsky of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology—has dominated linguistics for almost half a century. Recently, though, cognitive scientists and linguists have abandoned Chomsky’s “universal grammar” theory in droves because of new research examining many different languages—and the way young children learn to understand and speak the tongues of their communities. That work fails to support Chomsky’s assertions.

Forms of Address in the Spanish of the Americas

Forms of Address in the Spanish of the Americas | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it

In the growing field of address research, Spanish emerges as one of the most complex Indo European languages. Firstly, it presents second person variation in its nominal, pronominal, and verbal systems. Moreover, several Spanish varieties have more than two address variants, which compete and mix in intricate ways. Forms of Address in the Spanish of the Americas showcases current research into this unique linguistic situation, by presenting the original research of twelve scholars from a variety of theoretical and methodological perspectives. The articles cover diachronic change and regional variation, pragmatics, dialect contact, attitudes, and identity. The contributions are contextualized through an introduction and the responses of three established experts, while a conclusion delineates a research agenda for the future. This collection in English is meant to reach scholars beyond the confines of Hispanic linguistics. It should be of interest to Romance linguists and specialists on second person variation across languages.
