8 Fun Games and Activities to Teach Young Children a Foreign Language! This video is sponsored by WordUnited.com, who make the most beautiful write-and-wipe flashcards! READ THE COORDINATING BLOG POST : https://wp.me/p8wklJ-1TX Charlotte Mason encourages us to teach young children to focus on the spoken language, rather than the written in the early years. This can be done by using the language at home in a living context and through play. Once the child is ready to move onto the written language, I love using flashcards and bilingual books whilst they are young, before beginning any curriculum or workbook.

An Introduction to the Video Short: Second Language Anxiety In my last full semester of University I took a language curriculum classroom with 25 other students. We had many similarities; we all had a second language minor, and we all were on our journey to becoming teachers. The big difference between us was that our second languages were not all the same. During this term we experienced different lessons in different languages taught by our instructor, a guest instructor, and each other. This is when I experienced something that I had not felt since elementary school; the situation of being in a class where I did not understand the language that was spoken. This aroused many different feelings of worry, apprehension, fear, nervousness, and avoidance. I quietly repeated the words I could not pronounce properly because I did not want to say them wrong and sound foolish. I completely avoided answering questions that required using new languages in front of the class. It made me think about how difficult and overwhelming learning a language can actually be. While researching for our final project I kept these feelings I had felt in mind and stumbled across a plethora of articles on the subject of Second Language Anxiety. I hadn't known that such a thing existed, and needed to learn more. Immediately, this type of anxiety made sense to me. I understood the feelings and symptoms that were related to this specific anxiety. I knew I had found my topic. Many, many articles later, I discovered that there were key researchers in this field, in particular; Horowitz, MacIntyre, and Price. Once I had found their original works, I was set to begin to answer my key questions: What is Second Language Anxiety? What are its causes and symptoms? And how can a teacher alleviate this anxiety? Not only did I discover many solutions to Second Language Anxiety through research, but I was also able to expand on these ideas. My video is to the point and contains only key information. It was important to me that I stick to the most important information that teachers need to know. This way the video would stay on track and be more impacting. I am not an artist, I am not good with a camera, and I have zero editing skills, but like language, you must start somewhere. In the end, I can only hope that the amount of research that has been done on this topic is a reflection of the amount of teacher awareness on this topic. For all language teachers should know how to deal with language anxiety.

How can reading improve your English? What reading strategies can you use to improve your vocabulary, pronunciation, fluency, and enunciation? In this instructional and motivational video, I tell you how picking up a book can not only help you to improve your vocabulary but your speaking confidence and presentation skills as well. Watch the lesson, and let me know some of your favourite books in the comments section! https://www.engvid.com/how-to-improve-your-english-by-reading/ TRANSCRIPT Hey, everyone. I'm Alex. Thanks for clicking, and welcome to this lesson on "How to Improve Your English By Reading". So, it might be very obvious how reading can help you improve, you know, your speaking in English, particularly your vocabulary, but there are a number of reasons and a number of things that reading regularly and reading in specific ways can actually help you to improve your English, and also not only like your reading English, but your ability to speak properly or to speak confidently. And again, this applies not only to English as a second language learners, but also to English speakers, period. So pick up a book, and here's how picking up a book can help you to improve your English. So, number one: You can improve your English by picking up any book, reading out loud, and exaggerating what you're reading. You might think: "This sounds ridiculous", but if you are a second language learner, this is a fantastic way to improve your enunciation, your pronunciation, and presentation skills. Even if you're not a second language learner... English as a second language learner. So, for example, it doesn't matter what type of genre you like, what type of books you like. Me, personally, I love science-fiction, I love fantasy. And I can turn to, you know, pages in any of these books and read out loud, exaggerate what I'm saying, and just the act of doing this, of speaking out loud what I'm reading makes me feel, again, more confident speaking in front of an audience, for example. So I'll just open to a random page here and... Okay, so in this book, just so you know, there's a horse, his name is Artaq. And it says: "Artaq did not hesitate. He veered toward the Silver River. The wolves came after, soundless, fluid, black terror. Will was sure that this time they would not escape. Allanon was no longer there to help them. They were all alone." Now, what you notice is I'm... I'm trying to exaggerate: "They were all alone." Even like my l's. And focus on every letter when you're reading, because this type of reading, reading out loud, exaggerating, if you are a professional, this is a great way to build that clarity in your speech when you're speaking in front of people, and pacing yourself, how fast you speak as well is important, obviously, when you're giving a presentation. This second part... Again, this one can apply to both native speakers of English, but it's more specifically geared towards English as a second language speakers, and that is: Paying attention to word endings. And especially "ed" and "s" endings. So, specifically past tense words, like "wanted", okay? Or plural words, like "hawks" instead of one hawk, because a lot of, again, English as a second language learners sometimes forget the "ed" ending when they're reading. I've taught classes where, you know, students have to read out loud, and they're so focused on reading and getting the words correct, but the pronunciation, they just drop the ends of words sometimes, especially "ed", especially "s". So let me see if I can quickly find an example. Okay, here's one: "When he stayed on his feet..." When he... Oh, why am I pointing? You can't see that. You can't see that. So: "When he stayed on his feet" this is one part of the sentence. Again, you have the verb "stayed", so some new learners of English will sometimes read that as: "When he stay", "When he stay", and they just drop the end. So please, please, please focus on those "ed" and "s" endings, and this will really help your fluency, the ability of others to understand you, as well as your enunciation. "Stayed", okay? Number three: Pay attention to punctuation. Now, punctuation refers to the use of commas, periods, question marks, exclamation marks when you're reading. By paying attention to these things, you can actually focus on improving your intonation and your fluency; two specific things. So, the intonation refers to the up and down movement of your voice when you are saying something or reading something. So, for example, you know, raise... In the second part I said: "Raise intonation for yes or no questions." So if you notice when you're reading that, you know, this person is asking a yes or no question, then your voice should be moving up at the end. And, you know in speaking, this also improves that. So, for example, in this book there is... Okay, here's a yes or no question, the question is: "Did you find her?"

Autistic children who learn to speak another language may find it easier to switch tasks, a study has found.Youngsters on the spectrum often have a hard time 'switching gears' and chopping their attention between tasks.But new Canadian research, dubbed 'surprising' and 'exciting', shows being bilingual could increase their cognitive flexibility.Parents are often told not to bother teaching their child a second language if they have ASD out of fears it will add to their difficulties.Lead author Professor Aparna Nadig, based at McGill University in Montreal, said: 'This is a novel and surprising finding.'Over the past 15 years there has been a significant debate in the field about whether there is a "bilingual advantage" in terms of executive functions.'Some researchers have argued convincingly that living as a bilingual person and having to switch languages unconsciously... increases cognitive flexibility.'But no one has yet published research that clearly demonstrates that this advantage may also extend to children on the autism spectrum.'He added that 'it's very exciting to find that it does'. The study involved 40 children in a French speaking part of Canada who were all on the spectrum.Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is the umbrella term for conditions that affect social interaction, communication, interests and behaviour.Charities estimate there is around 700,000 people who are on the autism spectrum in the UK. In the US, it is as high as 3.5 million.Figures suggest four boys are diagnosed with autism - which often causes sufferers to struggle with social interaction - to every one girl.There's no 'cure' for ASD, but speech and language therapy, occupational therapy and educational support are available to help children and parents.The new study, published in the journal Child Development, suggests that learning a second language could also help curb symptoms.Dr Ana Maria Gonzalez-Barrero, co-author, added: 'It is critical to have more sound evidence for families to use when making important educational and child-rearing decisions.'She added that parents are 'often advised' that exposing a child with ASD to more than one language will just worsen their language problems.How was the study carried out?Youngsters involved in the experiment were between the ages of six and nine. They were divided into four groups.Twenty children were bilingual, with half having ASD. The other twenty children, of which half also had ASD, could only speak one language.They were all asked to sort blue rabbits and red boats that appeared on a computer screen by colour.They were then asked to switch and sort the same objects instead by their shape - regardless of their colour.The study found bilingual children with ASD performed significantly better than their monolingual peers when it came to the more complex part.Despite the small sample size, the researchers believed the 'bilingual advantage' that they saw in children with ASD has highly significant implications.Fur AutoNews- Source: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-5275395/Learning-second-language-help-autistic-children.html?ITO=1490&ns_mchannel=rss&ns_campaign=1490

There are about 7,000 languages spoken around the world -- and they all have different sounds, vocabularies and structures. But do they shape the way we think? Cognitive scientist Lera Boroditsky shares examples of language -- from an Aboriginal community in Australia that uses cardinal directions instead of left and right to the multiple words for blue in Russian -- that suggest the answer is a resounding yes. "The beauty of linguistic diversity is that it reveals to us just how ingenious and how flexible the human mind is," Boroditsky says. "Human minds have invented not one cognitive universe, but 7,000."

The School of Languages at The New School (http://www.newschool.edu/public-engagement/school-of-language-learning-teaching/) presents, “Fossilization: Is it Terminal, Doctor?” a lecture by Scott Thornbury discussing the methodology of moving language learners beyond the “plateau” of understanding to a higher plane of language comprehension. It's a truism, perhaps, that many learners reach a ‘plateau', beyond which no amount of instruction or use seems able to budge them. Are there any (psycholinguistic, sociolinguistic) grounds for believing that this so-called fossilization is terminal? What does it take to move a learner beyond the plateau? Based on his own experience of attempting to kick-start his fossilized Spanish, the speaker will look at the role of such factors as classroom instruction, extensive reading, vocabulary memorization and real language use as possible antidotes to ‘arrested development' in a second language. Scott Thornbury (MATEFL, with distinction, University of Reading, UK, http://www.scottthornbury.com/), a native of New Zealand who now lives in Spain, is currently series editor of the Cambridge Handbooks for Teachers series. He has been a prolific writer of books and articles for teachers and students and a tireless presenter at international ELT conferences, sharing the knowledge gained from his more than 30 years of experience as a teacher, teacher trainer, writer and researcher.

What does SECOND-LANGUAGE ACQUISITION mean? SECOND-LANGUAGE ACQUISITION meaning - SECOND-LANGUAGE ACQUISITION definition - SECOND-LANGUAGE ACQUISITION explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Second-language acquisition, second-language learning, or L2 (language 2) acquisition, is the process by which people learn a second language. Second-language acquisition (often abbreviated to SLA) is also the scientific discipline devoted to studying that process. The field of second-language acquisition is a subdiscipline of applied linguistics, but also receives research attention from a variety of other disciplines, such as psychology and education. A central theme in SLA research is that of interlanguage, the idea that the language that learners use is not simply the result of differences between the languages that they already know and the language that they are learning, but that it is a complete language system in its own right, with its own systematic rules. This interlanguage gradually develops as learners are exposed to the targeted language. The order in which learners acquire features of their new language stays remarkably constant, even for learners with different native languages, and regardless of whether they have had language instruction. However, languages that learners already know can have a significant influence on the process of learning a new one. This influence is known as language transfer. The primary factor driving SLA appears to be the language input that learners receive. Learners become more advanced the longer they are immersed in the language they are learning, and the more time they spend doing free voluntary reading. The input hypothesis developed by linguist Stephen Krashen makes a distinction between language acquisition and language learning (acquisition–learning distinction), claiming that acquisition is a subconscious process, whereas learning is a conscious one. According to this hypothesis, the acquisition process in L2 is the same as L1 (Language 1) acquisition. The learning process is consciously learning and inputting the language being learned. However, this goes as far as to state that input is all that is required for acquisition. Subsequent work, such as the interaction hypothesis and the comprehensible output hypothesis, has suggested that opportunities for output and for interaction may also be necessary for learners to reach more advanced levels. Research on how exactly learners acquire a new language spans a number of different areas. Focus is directed toward providing proof of whether basic linguistic skills are innate (nature), acquired (nurture), or a combination of the two attributes. Cognitive approaches to SLA research deal with the processes in the brain that underpin language acquisition, for example how paying attention to language affects the ability to learn it, or how language acquisition is related to short-term and long-term memory. Sociocultural approaches reject the notion that SLA is a purely psychological phenomenon, and attempt to explain it in a social context. Some key social factors that influence SLA are the level of immersion, connection to the L2 community, and gender. Linguistic approaches consider language separately from other kinds of knowledge, and attempt to use findings from the wider study of linguistics to explain SLA. There is also a considerable body of research about how SLA can be affected by individual factors such as age, learning strategies, and affective factors. A commonly discussed topic regarding age in SLA is the critical period hypothesis, which suggests that individuals lose the ability to fully learn a language after a particular age in childhood. Another topic of interest in SLA is the differences between adult and child learners. Learning strategies are commonly categorized as learning or communicative strategies, and are developed to improve their respective acquisition skills. Affective factors are emotional factors that influence an individual's ability to learn a new language. Common affective factors that influence acquisition are anxiety, personality, social attitudes, and motivation. Individuals may also lose a language through a process called second-language attrition. This is often caused by lack of use or exposure to a language over time. The severity of attrition depends on a variety of factors including level of proficiency, age, social factors, and motivation at the time of acquisition.

Classroom Instruction That Works with English Language Learners The Five Stages of Second Language Acquisition- Anyone who has been around children who are learning to talk knows that the process happens in stages—first understanding, then one-word utterances, then two-word phrases, and so on. Students learning a second language move through five predictable stages: Preproduction Early Production Speech Emergence Intermediate Fluency Advanced Fluency How quickly students progress through the stages depends on many factors, including level of formal education, family background, and length of time spent in the country. It is important that you tie instruction for each student to his or her particular stage of language acquisition. Knowing this information about each student allows you to work within his or her zone of proximal development—that gap between what students can do on their own and what they can with the help of more knowledgeable individuals (Vygotsky, 1978).

It seems like everyone in Europe speaks at least 2-3 languages, but most Americans only speak English. Why is that? Like most Americans, my education included at least 6 years of foreign language studies, starting with the 6th grade, but I can barely order a burrito at Taco Bell without sounding like a tourist. It's hard to pinpoint why my language education didn't stick, because I didn't just forget what I learned. I never really grasped the language even when I was in school, and I can say the same for just about everyone I went to school with. I think there's something fundamentally wrong with the way we teach foreign languages in the US. Perhaps it's a lack of practice. The moment we step out of that classroom, we aren't motivated to use anything we learned. I'm not exactly sure how to fix the problem, but I think we should find a better way to motivate students to learn a second language. In today's connected world, language skills are very important, so it's even more important for students to really learn and use more than one language.
