Today, there are about four nonnative-speaking English teachers for every teacher who is a native speaker. More English teachers work in non-English-speaking settings than in English-speaking settings, and most are natives of the countries in which they teach. This volume focuses on the challenges faced by English teachers for whom Englishis a second (or even third or fourth) language. Four themes receive special emphasis: communicative language teaching, proficiency, language learning, and practicality. Chapters 1-5 cover issues of classroom survival: basic principles of language learning and teaching and course and lesson planning. Chapters 6-13 discuss the language skills of listening, speaking, reading, writing, vocabulary, and grammar; the role of culture in language teaching; and some of the problems that recur in EFL classrooms. An afterword suggests paths for teachers who want to pursue further study, and appendixes offer a starter kit for course planning, samplecourse plans, culture-topic activity ideas for oral skills classes, and print and Internet resources for teachers and students.

Understanding Second Language Acquisition

Author: Lourdes Ortega

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 144411705X

Category: Language Arts & Disciplines

Page: 320

View: 4801

Whether we grow up with one, two, or several languages during our early years of life, many of us will learn a second, foreign, or heritage language in later years. The field of Second language acquisition (SLA, for short) investigates the human capacity to learn additional languages in late childhood, adolescence, or adulthood, after the first language --in the case of monolinguals-- or languages --in the case of bilinguals-- have already been acquired. Understanding Second Language Acquisition offers a wide-encompassing survey of this burgeoning field, its accumulated findings and proposed theories, its developed research paradigms, and its pending questions for the future. The book zooms in and out of universal, individual, and social forces, in each case evaluating the research findings that have been generated across diverse naturalistic and formal contexts for second language acquisition. It assumes no background in SLA and provides helpful chapter-by-chapter summaries and suggestions for further reading. Ideal as a textbook for students of applied linguistics, foreign language education, TESOL, and education, it is also recommended for students of linguistics, developmental psycholinguistics, psychology, and cognitive science. Supporting resources for tutors are available free at www.routledge.com/ortega.
