Message 2: L2 learning/cultural empathy

From: <MCCONVELL_PDARWIN.NTU.EDU.AU>
Subject: L2 learning/cultural empathy

A graduate student in Education approached a colleague of mine with
a query which Linguist people may be able to help with. He is doing
an evaluation of an exchange program with Indonesia one object of which
is to prepare more high school teachers of Indonesia here in Australia.

He wondered if there is anything written on the correlation of degree
of acquisition of an L2 with degree of empathy and participation in the
culture of the L2 speakers. High involvement/skills might seem to be a
good thing for teachers in both areas; however negative aspects might be
there. Apparently there seems to be a correlation between development of
good skills in the language and dropping out of teaching. Could this be
due to "culture shock" on return to Australia of those who became most
deeply immersed?

Any references/ideas gratefully received. If there are a number, I could
summarise.

Subject: Psycholinguistics teaching

For an undergraduate course I will shortly be teaching in psycholinguistics, I
would appreciate any suggestions as to texts which other instructors have had
good experiences with. Also, I would be indebted if anyone can offer specific
references to the work of Helen Neville on deaf alinguals and the acquisiton of
ASL. Thanks

Hi,

HELP! I have to design an experiment to do with Mandarin tones as
part of a phonology requirement on my graduate course.
There seems to be very little literature on this in the library.

If anyone can think of any on-going debates on the phonology/phonetics
of Mandarin tones for which an experiment would be useful, please
could you give me information and references.

I would welcome any suggestions at all.

Thanks a lot,

Sophia Wang. (sophialing.ed.ac.uk)
