Communication Strategies for Second Language Acquisition
Language learners often freeze up or completely stop communicating when they hit a point of language that they dont know how to navigate. Antonio Graceffo teaches his students that it is OK to make mistakes. And when they dont know how to say something, they should describe it or talk around it. To demonstrate, Antonio tells a Chinese story to his students, and has them keep a tally of his mistakes in spoken Chinese. In spite of his more than 40 mistakes, the students understood the whole story.

Stages of Second Language Acquisition: ESL, ELL, LEP & Bilingual
Get the full PowerPoint Presentation here https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Educating-ELL-ESL-Students-PD-Presentation-3932820 This video offers a description of the stages of second language acquisition credited to Judie Haynes. It begins an overview of the first stage which is the silent period. There students basically listen and try to learn. The next stage is early production. In that stage, esl, ell, bilingual or lep students begin saying words. After that, the speech emergence stage arrives, where students begin to say sentences. Then the fourth stage becomes apparent, where ell, esl, lep, and bilingual students get more comfortable with the English language. And the video ends with the last stages, known as advanced fluency. That stage ends with a student becoming proficient in English language.
Language learning - The Most Effective Method Of All
There is lots of research and discussion on the most effective way to learn languages. The answer is, whatever you enjoy doing with the language. Transcript: Hi there, Steve Kaufmann here. First of all, I want to say that I did a webcam interview with Luca, the wonderful Italian polyglot. We are going to put it up here at my YouTube channel, but I’m waiting until I’m away because while I’m away I can’t do any videos. I’m going to be in Australia and New Zealand and so Alex is going to put up some pictures. I think Luca and I went at it for about 40 minutes or so, so it’s going to be at least four sessions. So that’s when you’ll be seeing those interviews that I did with Luca, just so there’s not a blank for a whole month. I want to talk today, in the subject of language learning, about something that’s kind of been running around in my mind. I come up with all these things that are the key to language learning and I may have used this before, I don’t know, but it suddenly dawned on me that the most important thing is, is it fun. Do you enjoy doing it? I mentioned this in my 7 Secrets to Language Learning, I think the first one was spend the time and the second was to do things that you enjoy doing.

Teaching Vocabulary to Young Learners Through Brain-Based Teaching Strategies by Setenay Çelik
Having started with the point that children learn easily and forget quickly, I have been working a lot on how to teach vocabulary to young learners by improving their memory skills. If it comes to memory, it is well worth searching about the brain. Throughout my search, I have found out that as long as the teachers meet the needs of the young brains, it is easier for the learners to remember new vocabulary items. In this presentation I’m planning to share my findings and ten practical brain- based activities that I use in my classes and find really effective. Setenay is from Turkey and she has been teaching English for 8 years including 4 years of teaching when she was a university student. She holds a Masters Degree in English Language Teaching from Gazi University in Ankara, Turkey. Her particular areas of interest are teaching English to young learners and creating new, useful classroom materials and activities.

Have a Language Immersion Strategy
Visit https://www.LingQ.com My Blog: http://blog.thelinguist.com/ My Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/lingosteve My Twitter: https://twitter.com/lingosteve Follow "Steve's Cafe" Channel: http://www.youtube.com/c/SteveKaufmann Transcript: Hi there. Steve Kaufmann here again and today I’m going to talk about language immersion. If you enjoy these videos on language learning, please subscribe. Also, I remind those of you who are not native speakers, this video, the audio and the transcript can be studied at LingQ. I’m going to leave a link in description box so you can study this to improve your English. I think we all know that language immersion is an ideal way to improve in a language. What do we mean by language immersion? Obviously, it means being immersed in the language. In other words, hearing the language, reading the language, speaking the language, being covered head to foot, so to speak. If we think of the analogy with swimming or being immersed in water, language immersion is being immersed in the language. Normally, this can be the situation if you live where the language is spoken. If you live surrounded by the language, you’re immersed in the language. Being where the language is spoken is no guarantee. In other words, you may in fact be immersed in the language and potentially in a language immersion situation, but don’t take advantage of it. We have many examples here in Canada of immigrants who live here for many years and don’t improve in English because they don’t take advantage of that environment, so it’s no guarantee. Part of the reason why they don’t is because, let’s face it, it’s not that easy. You do have to have a strategy. You do have to prepare yourself. You can’t just go there and expect somehow by magic that you’re going to pick up the language. When I went to Japan I didn’t go to school, but I learned Japanese. I spent a lot of time listening, reading and building up my vocabulary so I could understand what people were saying so I could interact with them. So you still have to have a strategy, even if you are immersed in the language. If you are not where the language is spoken, then I think you could have kind of a related strategy, which is what I do. Right now I’m working on Polish and I would like, one day, to go to Poland. I hope I do go, I don’t know when I will go, but I have that as a goal -- to eventually put myself in a situation where I will be immersed and experiencing language immersion. So I spend a lot of time reading on the internet, at LingQ I use our Chrome extension to quickly import articles from Polish newspapers, while maintaining my Ukrainian and Russian. So I listen and once a week or so I may speak. In other words, I’m preparing myself with the thought that one day I will be in that language-immersion environment and I’ll be ready to hit the ground running. So you do need to have a strategy, whether you’re in the immersion environment or whether you’re trying to create an artificial immersion environment and, of course, that’s much easier to do today than it ever was in the past. Also, when I think of language immersion I think of French immersion. Here in Canada, Anglophone students do all of their schooling for the first seven, eight, nine years in French and by Grade 10 and 11 it tapers off a bit, but at least half their subjects are in French, even in those final years. Apparently, because I have three grandchildren who went through the program, the first six-seven years or so the kids do speak to each other in French and then they are less and less inclined to do so, so the immersion experience becomes less of a full language-immersion experience. Also, they read in class, but they don’t have any handy tools to make that reading easier for them and it is hard to read on science, history, math, whatever it might be, in another language. I think that LingQ would be very useful in this immersion environment because it adds another dimension. So they’re not just reading, they can listen to the text, they can save words and phrases. Also, I think the audio helps give you some momentum. Especially when I was younger, reading in French as a 17-year-old was more difficult. But if you have the audio, if you can easily look up new words and see the words you previously looked up and so forth, it just gives you more momentum and makes it a more complete language-immersion experience, in my view. Anyway, those are my views on language immersion and I look forward to your thoughts. Bye for now.

The Natural Approach (Krashen)
Visit my blog with lots of resources for learning English: http://simonfilms.blogspot.com.es/2012/09/tutorial-para-aprender-ingles.html The Natural Approach is a method for beginners based on observation and interpretation on how a person acquires his first language. It emphasizes on communication rather than on grammar. One of the things which is very important and conclusive when learning is that the input has to be comprehensible. That is at least what Krashen has always said. Teach with a lot of comprehensible input that will allow the student to activate the acquisition process. But I also think that even if the input is not comprehensible you end up learning because some kind of unconscious learning. I mean if you spend a lot of time listening to a language (in the country) in the beginning all the input is not comprehensible but you sort of learn something, the accent, the intonation, some isolated words, sometimes some information which is linked with non verbal communication and so on and so forth.

Application of ACT to Learning Strategies - Second Language Acquisition (Lecture 81)
Application of ACT to Learning Strategies Second Language Acquisition
What is SECOND-LANGUAGE ACQUISITION? 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. Finally, classroom research deals with the effect that language instruction has on acquisition.
