Pathways to Advanced Skills, vol. 13: Teaching and Learning Korean as a Foreign Language
Print

Description

Korean as a Foreign Language (KFL) in U.S. college settings began on a small scale. Despite experiencing huge growth in recent years, KFL pedagogy is still in its beginning stages. KFL research monographs and/or edited volumes are relatively few, as compared to mainstream second/foreign language (L2) field. The NEALRC published this volume as a timely addition to the growing KFL field. This volume contains eleven original studies that explore various pedagogical issues in KFL . This book aims to facilitate the dialogue between the existing instructional L2 acquisition theories and their applicability/practicality when implemented in actual KFL classroom settings. This book will be of particular interest to graduate students, language teachers, curriculum developers, and researchers in the fields of KFL as well as applied linguistics.

There Remain Words to Say
Print

Description

This is the second volume of Songs of Thorns and Flowers: Bilingual Performance and Discourse on Modern Korean Poetry Series (2010- ), a pedagogical approach to modern Korean poetry for college-level studies of Korean language and literature. Volume Two, "There Remain Words to Say," features 35 translated poems of the 2010 Ku Sang Poet Laureate Yoo An-Jin. Reading poetry exposes the learner to the art of performativity in Korean language and culture. To make visible the rhetorical and semantic transfer from Korean to English, the original and the translated poems are laid side by side. Not only will learners of Korean benefit from the book but also Korean learners of English can observe how the nuances of poetry and language get translated from Korean to English. In order to give readers a stronger appreciation of the poet’s expressiveness, a section entitled “Replace with the poet’s words in Korean” is provided for most of the poems. Under the section “Discuss,” suggestions are given to stimulate discussion and further exploration. Historical explanations and annotations on language use are provided where appropriate. The included companion DVD features video interviews with the poet and audio recitations.

2022 Pragmatics & Language Learning Conference

The National Foreign Language Resource Center at the University of Hawaii at Manoa and the Center for Applied Second Language Studies at the University of Oregon are pleased to announce the 2022 Pragmatics and Language Learning Conference (PLL 2022) which will take place online on September 12-14, 2022. The conference main theme will be Teaching and Learning Interactional Pragmatics in a Digital World, but we welcome a broad range of topics in pragmatics, discourse, interaction, and sociolinguistics in their relation to second and foreign language learning, education, and use, approached from a variety of theoretical and methodological perspectives. We hope this conference brings together scholars and educators from all around the world who are interested in discussing both established and innovative approaches to teaching and learning pragmatics to strengthen our understanding of principles and practices in PLL and push the field to new and exciting directions in research and practice. Plenary talks will be live and we have tried to schedule them so that a large part of our audience can access at least half of them. The rest of the presentations will be simulive (pre-recorded 20 minute presentation with live interaction by the presenters) or poster sessions (5-7 minute-pre-recorded presentation within Zoom breakout rooms for interaction).

All LRCs
Previous LRC
Next LRC
In 1990, the Department of Education established the first Language Resource Centers (LRCs) at U.S. universities in response to the growing national need for expertise and competence in foreign languages. Now, twenty-five years later, Title VI of the Higher Education Act supports sixteen LRCs, creating a national network of resources to promote and improve the teaching and learning of foreign languages.

LRCs create language learning and teaching materials, offer professional development opportunities for language instructors, and conduct and disseminate research on foreign language learning. All LRCs engage in efforts that enable U.S. citizens to better work, serve, and lead.

8 Areas of Focus

Each LRC has a unique story and mission, but all LRC work is organized around eight basic areas:
  • Research
  • Teaching materials
  • Digital tools and resources
  • Assessment
  • Professional development
  • Less commonly taught languages initiatives
  • K-12 initiatives
  • Outreach and dissemination
