Linguistlist.org - пн, 29/10/2018 - 22:55
This book explores the interfaces of English as a Lingua Franca (ELF) and English as a Foreign Language (EFL) pedagogy.

Accounts of innovative and practical pedagogical practices and resea

Linguistlist.org - пн, 29/10/2018 - 22:55
The measurement and tracking of learning gains over time using standardized assessment data will play an ever more important role as new technology makes repeat test taking increasingly common. This area requires more attention if we are to better understand sources of score variability as well as learners' development of language skills over time. The aim of this special issue is to bring together and highlight emerging research in this area. We particularly welcome papers reporting empirical

Госдума всматривается в языки России

В Государственной Думе открылись слушания о языковом многообразии Российской Федерации. Депутаты познакомятся с состоянием языков страны и обсудят перспективы. Слушания откладывали четыре раза.

Председатель комитета Госдумы по делам национальностей Ильдар Гильмутдинов считает, что государство тоже ответственно за сохранение разнообразия языков:

Эффективность работы по сохранению родных языков зависит от роли и участия государства, общества в целом и каждой семьи в отдельности. А это значит, поддержка родных языков должна осуществляться в образовательной, научной, общекультурной, информационной сферах.

Особого внимания и совершенствования требует система подготовки педагогических и научных кадров. У нас в настоящее время нет специальности по подготовке воспитателей детских садов, которые работают с двуязычным ребенком. Отсутствует специальность учителя начальных классов с обучением на родном языке. Невозможно защитить кандидатскую или докторскую диссертации по методике преподавания национальных языков. Ни в одном субъекте мы не наберем семи докторов по данной специальности. Надо понимать, что не будет таких специалистов — не будут и развиваться языки.

На слушаниях обсудят внедрение системы электронного обучения родному языку, возможность дать вузами право добавлять баллы освоившим программы родного языка абитуриентам, способы поощрения учителей за особые успехи учеников в предмете «Родной язык», возрождение всероссийского олимпиадного движения по родным языкам, создание сайта национальных литератур народов России, дополнение и расширение программы «Русский язык и языки народов России» и другие вопросы, — сообщает „Национальный акцент“.

По итогам слушаний Комитет опубликует рекомендации по поддержке родных языков народов России.

Linguistlist.org - сб, 27/10/2018 - 00:51
This book offers a detailed account of the impact that contact with the English language has had on Italian language and society.
