Attitude
~Attitude~

“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company... a church... a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we embrace for that day. We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the string that we have, and that is our attitude... I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our attitudes.”

Charles Swindoll

  • Interlinguistic:

    Brought about by the clash of two or more languages…

Comprehensible input
Comprehensible Input

  • The language acquirer understands the input.

  • Essential to language acquisition and literacy.

  • Comprehended input (intake) is what counts, not just input that is potentially comprehensible.

Comprehensible input1
Comprehensible Input

  • Comprehensible input should also contain language that has not yet been acquired but which the learner is ready to acquire (i + 1)

  • The more comprehensible input provided, the more language acquisition and literacy developed.

10 organizing principles for language acquisition
10 ORGANIZING PRINCIPLES FOR LANGUAGE ACQUISITION

1. Language is primarily self-selected, not imitated.

2. Language is acquired, not taught.

3. Language is a problem-solving device. To ignore this fact during instruction causes language to becomethe problem.

4. Renovation is a byproduct of ownership.

5. A child will not exceed, in L2, the ability shown in L1.


10 organizing principles for language acquisition1
10 ORGANIZING PRINCIPLES FOR LANGUAGE ACQUISITION

6. Linguistic accuracy is a destination, not a point of

departure.

7. Grammar and syntax minimize miscommunication.

8. Linguistic accuracy assures that the largest number of us shall have the best opportunity to understand one another

9. The conventions (rules) of a given language must not impede the invention of that language.

10. People who communicate take risks. There is an

intimate relationship between language acquisition and the amount of risk-taking, vulnerability and intuition encouraged.
