Visual Perception in Language Learning: A Developmental Perspective with Implications for Second Language Learning and Research.
Harrison, Roseanne Thomas; Rickard, David T.
The use of visuals in facilitating language learning is investigated by first looking at the effects of both visual and auditory perceptions on the ontogeny of language. This paper then samples the growing body of research and data on the ways in which visuals facilitate first language learning. The use of visuals in teaching/learning is examined in terms of concept formation, comprehension, reading and listening, and applications and implications of this research in second language research and in second language classrooms are considered. A discussion of visuals and communicative competence is also provided, as well as demonstrations with discussion in the use of single slides or pictures, sequences of slides or pictures, teaching/modeling oral communicative conpetence, slides with subtitles, design of visuals, and other points for discussion.
