Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain.

Title: Los procesos metodológicos de la enseñanza-aprendizaje de lenguas mediante tareas
Written By: Kerwin Anthony Livingstone
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in Second Language Teaching 13

Este presente trabajo pone énfasis en los procesos metodológicos
involucrados en la construcción de cursos de lenguas basados en tareas
respecto a la enseñanza-aprendizaje de lenguas extranjeras (LE) y segundas
lenguas (L2). La primera parte de este trabajo hace hincapié tanto en el
diseño de la lección didáctica como en las distintas fases del diseño de
tareas tales como la fase de pre-tarea, de la ejecución de la tarea, y la
de post-tarea. Se va a prestar especial atención a las diferencias
significativas entre la metodología de la enseñanza tradicional tanto como
la metodología de la didáctica moderna. La segunda parte de esta obra se va
a concentrar en la estructura participativa de la que deben ser parte los
alumnos y el profesor.

Además, se va a establecer la importancia del trabajo colaborativo/
cooperativo en la resolución de las tareas. Es absolutamente necesario
poner de relieve que el tipo de proceso metodológico que se implemente va a
tener un impacto profundo en la ejecución de las tareas presentadas durante
el proceso de enseñanza-aprendizaje de los alumnos. Palabras claves:
Enseñanza-Aprendizaje de Lenguas Mediante Tareas, metodología, diseño de
tarea, tarea, plan de estudios, procesos metodológicos, estructura
participativa, focalización en la forma.
