It's Been Said Before

Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: Code Choice in the Language Classroom
Written By: Glenn S. Levine

"Code Choice in the Language Classroom" argues that the foreign language
classroom is and should be regarded as a multilingual community of practice
rather than as a perpetually deficient imitator of an exclusive
second-language environment. From a sociocultural and ecological
perspective, Levine guides the reader through a theoretical, empirical, and
pedagogical treatment of the important roles of the first language, and of
code-switching practices, in the language classroom. Intended for SLA
researchers, language teachers, language program directors, and graduate
students of foreign languages and literatures, the book develops a
framework for thinking about all aspects of code choice in the language
classroom and offers concrete proposals for designing and carrying out
instruction in a multilingual classroom community of practice.
