DocumentoAge effects in second language learning: stepping stones toward better understanding(Pereira : Universidad Tecnológica de Pereira, 2013) Gil Gómez, Paola Carolina ; Velasco Medina, Gabriel Eduardo"As should be apparent by now, the position taken in this book is that second language teaching should focus on encouraging acquisition, on providing input that stimulates the subconscious language acquisition potential all normal human beings have. This does not mean to say, however, that there is no room at all for conscious learning. Conscious learning does have a role, but it is no longer the lead actor in the play." (Krashen and Terrell, 1981). In his article, the author DeKeyser (2013), points out the relevance attained to the Second Language Learning, with controversial issues such as conceptual misunderstanding and methodological difficulties. On the other hand, the author seeks that the debate between each other is be able to agree on them, through the suggestions for improvement in subject selection, data collection, and instrumentation to understand how crucial is the age effects for educational policy and curriculum design; and how different are the foreign language learning from second language learning environments.
DocumentoDeveloping real life experience through teaching culture in the EFL class: fostering the learning trough intercultural awareness(Pereira : Universidad Tecnológica de Pereira, 2013) Ramírez Rojas, Diana CarolinaIn order to know how university can give learners useful tools to develop the communicative competence into the English class, it is necessary to implement different kind of activities that involve the students in a curriculum of meaningful content. One of the aspects to take into account is the inclusion of Culture in the learning process in English classes. One of the key components in language is Culture. Culture, however, varies from one country to another and from one community to another within that country. Due to the diversity of cultures, it is important for teachers to know the culture that is going to be taught in the language-learning classroom. The problem state by the author is that culture is not part of the curriculum in many universities due to the fact that teachers leave behind the role of culture in the EFL because teachers are not culturally aware, the extra time devoted to activities and the limited span of time to complete the syllabi in a semester. Moreover, the author argues that universities neglect to teach culture due to students’ negative attitude towards the target culture.
DocumentoRecasts and their use in second language development(Pereira : Universidad Tecnológica de Pereira, 2013) Pérez Santacoloma, Angela María ; Córdoba Soto, JavierThis essay intends to review various research articles in order to describe a general idea about what has been found supporting the use of recasts and what has been found as negative evidence about its use. Recasts are one of the most useful methodological resources to provide feedback in SLA (Gass, et al..2003, cited by Nassaji, 2009. p.2) There are some researchers which have found the relative effect of recasts over other models of feedback (Long, et al., 1998), whether recasts promote learner uptake (Lyster and Ranta, 1997), whether recasts exposes learners to positive or negative evidence (Leeman, 2003). The use of recasts has better effects than modeling, any type of input enhancement, and elicitations; nevertheless, teachers should be selective regarding the type of error to which recasts are apply; facilitator, as feedback provider, and learner as receptor, are influenced by the nature of the conversation in which they are involved. As a consequence, output production after the recasts is forced by the apprehension the learner has.
