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. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: Corrective Feedback, Individual Differences and Second Language Learning
Written By: Younghee Sheen
URL: http://www.springer.com/education+%26+language/learning+%26+instruction/book/978-94-007-0547-0?chang
Series Title: Educational Linguistics
Description:

This book explores current thinking about the role of corrective feedback in
language learning and teaching. Corrective feedback is a topic that is of
relevance to both theories of second language learning and language
pedagogy.

Younghee Sheen, an Assistant Professor of Applied Linguistics at the
American University in Washington D.C., offers a new perspective by
reviewing a wide body of research on both oral and written corrective
feedback and its contribution to second language acquisition. She also
reports the results of her own study, pointing to the need to examine how
individual factors such as anxiety and language aptitude mediate learners’
ability to benefit from the oral and written feedback they receive.

This book is an important resource for students and scholars of applied
linguistics and second language acquisition. It will also be of interest to
language teachers and teacher educators wanting to deepen their
understanding of error correction strategies in the classroom.
