Topics in Language and Linguistics #8: Second Language Teaching Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This volume offers a practical introduction to the use of neuroscience to teach second languages. It provides information on the relation between how the brain learns and how this can be used to construct classroom activities, evaluates methods, syllabi, approaches, etc. from the perspective of brain functioning. It illustrates how teaching can unfold with actual examples in several languages.

Book News Annotation:

Danesi (U. of Toronto) provides language teachers, curriculum planners, and applied linguists with pedagogical insights he has gained from neuroscientific research and its implications for second language teaching (SLT). Focusing on the different functions of the left and right hemispheres, Danesi argues that understanding of the differing L-mode, R-mode, and intermodal processes can be purposefully used to make SLT "brain-compatible." He provides numerous practical examples of ways to apply these neuroscientific principles to activate the brain in the classroom and increase the effectiveness of SLT.
