Outline l.jpg

Outline

  • Sector-Specific Language Training (SSLT): teaching and testing

2. Language as a system of systems

3. Language use as a system of systems

4. Goals of learning as the starting point of SSLT


Language as a system of systems l.jpg

Language as a System of Systems

  • Phonology: sounds

  • Syntax: grammar

  • Semantics: vocabulary

The chicken analogy:

skin, meat and bone


Language use as a system of systems l.jpg

Language Use as a System of Systems

  • Linguistic function: sounds, grammar, vocabulary

  • Content: What is said

  • Setting: Where, when, how and to whom it is said

skin, meat and bone


Pragmatic framework in sslt l.jpg

Pragmatic Framework in SSLT

  • Language structure vs Language use

  • Pragmatic framework as one system of language use

  • Feasibility of language use as a system in language training

    • Every system is a representative set of features

    • The concept of linguistic functions in context


Proficiency assessment with pragmatic considerations l.jpg

Proficiency Assessment with Pragmatic Considerations

  • How do we know where we are: assessment

  • What we test is what we get

  • Direct vs indirect test: the driving test

  • Language use vs the test for language use

Implementation of the language use as a system of systems in sslt l.jpg

Implementation of the Language Use as a System of Systems in SSLT

  • Start at the end

  • Determine the rubrics in the assessment and use it in the learning process

    • Task in real life: determine what is needed (bottom up vs top down)

    • TLU categorization: summarize and prepare representing scenarios

    • TLU analysis: decompose scenarios according to a system or framework

    • TLU reconstructed: prepare a taxonomy of scenarios

    • TMP based on scenarios

    • Task in assessment: create assessment tools based on what is needed


Case analysis l.jpg

Case Analysis

  • CA1: The Listening Summary Translation Exam (LSTE/US)

  • CA2: Language Proficiency Benchmark Assessment (LPBA/HKSAR)

  • CA3: (PSC/HSK/HZC/China)

  • CA4: Computerized Oral Proficiency Assessment (COPA/CUHK/HK)

Summary goals of learning and their effects on teaching and testing l.jpg

Summary: Goals of Learning and their Effects on Teaching and Testing

  • Language: parts vs whole

  • General training vs. SSLT

  • Common core in all sector specific training programs


Food for thoughts l.jpg

Food for thoughts

Language and language use:

What is it?

Assessment:

Who will assess

the assessors?

The system of language use:

Where does

it come from?
