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.

Abstract: Since Language Learning Strategies (LLSs) have potential to be, "an extremely powerful learning tool" (O'Malley, Chamot, Stewner-Manzanares, Russo & Kupper, 1985a, p.43), the use of LLSs helps the learners retrieve and store material, and facilitate their learning (Grander & Maclntyre, 1992),they are sensitive to the learning context and to the learner's internal processing preferences, also they are extremely important part of second/foreign language teaching and learning, and there is relationship between the frequent use of LLSs and achievement in the language (Bremner, 1999; Green & Oxford, 1995; Oxford & Burry-Stock, 1995). There is need to understand what LLSs are, in what manner it is possible to teach them to learners, how learners choose and use them, and which variables affect the choice and use of them. A review of the relevant literature shows that there are various variables that affect the choice and use of LLSs. Personality traits as one of the most predictors, significantly influence success in learning a second language (Gass & Selinker, 1994). In the current study, the investigator aims to explore the nature of LLSs and their relationship to different variables.
