A Longitudinal Study of Listening Perception in Adult Learners of English: Implications for Teachers
Tracey M. Derwing, Ron I. Thomson, Jennifer A. Foote and Murray J. Munro
This study is intended to help ESL (English as a second language) instructors make evidence-based decisions based on second language (L2) listening-development findings when selecting features for pronunciation instruction.

Vocabulary Learning through Assisted and Unassisted Repeated Reading
Stuart Webb and Anna C-S Chang

L'utilisation d'une mesure de la mémoire phonologique auprès d'une population d'enfants linguistiquement hétérogène

Nous avons comparé les résultats des deux groupes à une tâche de répétition de non-mots. ...

Drawing on a corpus of 1.6 million words from messages posted on a UK-hosted adolescent health Web site, analysis began by identifying a range of keywords relating to self-harm.
