Psycholinguistic Framework for a Humanistic Model of Foreign Language Acquisition.
McCoy, Ingeborg R.
Human development tasks have become an integral part of many humanistic curriculum models. When such activities are employed in the foreign language classroom, several prominent factors can be indentified: on a psychological (affective) level, integrative and transactional motivation; on a linguistic (cognitive/affective) level, active listening comprehension and creative language use. No concrete psycholinguistic evidence has been established for the effectiveness of the enumerated factors; but support can be found in current psycholinguistic theory and research in their application to second language learning. A psycholinguistic framework accentuates the need to include human development tasks into objective research as well as to make them part of successful foreign language programs. (Author)
