Goodhead, Lauren K.; MacMillan, Frances M. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
The authors have experienced increasing demand from undergraduate students, particularly those in the early years of study, to be able to access more "test-style" material to help with revision, as well as guidance on how to approach their university assessments. With increased use of multiple-choice questions (MCQs) in university…

Rahmanian, Sadaf; Kuperman, Victor – Scientific Studies of Reading, 2019
Spelling errors are typically thought of as an "effect" of a word's weak orthographic representation in an individual mind. What if existence of spelling errors is a partial "cause" of effortful orthographic learning and word recognition? We selected words that had homophonic substandard spelling variants of varying frequency…

Schmalz, Xenia; Moll, Kristina; Mulatti, Claudio; Schulte-Körne, Gerd – Scientific Studies of Reading, 2019
Previous studies found a relationship between performance on statistical learning (SL) tasks and reading ability and developmental dyslexia. Thus, it has been suggested that the ability to implicitly learn patterns may be important for reading acquisition. Causal mechanisms behind this relationship are unclear: Although orthographic sensitivity to…

van der Kleij, Sanne W.; Groen, Margriet A.; Segers, Eliane; Verhoeven, Ludo – Scientific Studies of Reading, 2019
This study investigated in a longitudinal design how 74 Dutch children with dyslexia and 39 typically developing peers differed in sequential versus spatial implicit learning and overnight consolidation, and it examined whether implicit learning related to (pseudo)word reading development in Grades 5 and 6. The results showed that sequential, but…

Heugh, Kathleen; Stroud, Christopher; Scarino, Angela – Current Issues in Language Planning, 2019
In this paper we draw attention to people who journey from one temporal and spatial setting towards another in the 'South', who aspire to a reconfigured sense of belonging, prosperity and wellbeing, and their multilinguality and multilingualisms. Through three vignettes of journeys we illustrate how in changing of place that linguistic diversities…

Maher, Terezinha Machado; Cavalcanti, Marilda do Couto – Current Issues in Language Planning, 2019
The aim of this chapter is to take a critical and decolonial stance towards the experiences of Indigenous people in the urban diasporas of Brazil. We do this by discussing ethnographic data that provide insights into the impact of this migration on the construction of the identities of Indigenous Brazilians who move to urban spaces and consider…

Simpson, Jane; Wigglesworth, Gillian – Current Issues in Language Planning, 2019
The diversity of language in Australia in pre-invasion times is well attested, with at least 300 distinct languages being spoken along with many dialects. At that time, many Indigenous people were multilingual, often speaking at least four languages. Today many of these languages have been lost, with fewer than 15 being learned by children as a…

Amery, Rob – Current Issues in Language Planning, 2019
Following the invasion, or colonisation as some prefer to call it, Indigenous Australia has been characterised by plummeting populations, largely as a result of introduced diseases and the movement of peoples, following the theft of their lands and in response to colonial and subsequent Australian state and federal government policies. At times,…

Jain, Ritu; Wee, Lionel – Current Issues in Language Planning, 2019
Increasing societal and linguistic diversity poses significant challenges to formative categories of language policies. We make this point via an examination of Singapore's management of its most linguistically diverse ethnic group, the Indians. While heterogeneity has always been Singapore's defining feature, the nature and scale of recent…

da Costa Cabral, Ildegrada – Current Issues in Language Planning, 2019
This paper contributes to the building of a sociolinguistics of the south by considering the nature and significance of contemporary language-in-education policy processes in Timor-Leste, and by tracing the ways in which these processes have been shaped by its specific colonial and post-colonial history. In presenting this account, I draw on…

Gingras, Maxime; Sénéchal, Monique – Scientific Studies of Reading, 2019
We investigated how and when French children in Grades 1-5 acquire orthographic representations for silent letters and double consonants. Linear mixed-effects modeling analyses on the spelling accuracy scores obtained for 2,519 French words were used to test our predictions. As predicted, the presence of a silent letter or double consonant had a…

Mahdavi, Neda; Miri, Mowla – International Journal of Listening, 2019
This study examined the effect of metacognitive process-based and product-based instruction on enhancing listening comprehension and metacognitive awareness. Two classes of high-beginner English as a foreign language learners were randomly assigned to two groups: product-based (n = 30) process-based (n = 30). Both before and after eight…

Roussel, Stéphanie; Gruson, Brigitte; Galan, Jean-Philippe – International Journal of Listening, 2019
This study investigates the impact of a high-level and a low-level process-based L2 comprehension training on L1 French students' listening performances. These students (N = 108) of English, Spanish, and German came from five different classes. After a L2 comprehension pretest, the participants were divided into two experimental groups. During the…

Peck, Catherine; Yates, Lynda – Language and Intercultural Communication, 2019
The 'intercultural turn' in foreign language education has brought to the fore the need to foster intercultural competences. Yet in contexts where virtually all intercultural communication is mediated by English as a foreign language (hereafter EFL), proficiency in that language determines to a large extent access to intercultural experiences,…

McKinley, Jim; Dunworth, Katie; Grimshaw, Trevor; Iwaniec, Janina – Language and Intercultural Communication, 2019
With the number of international postgraduate students in UK universities steadily increasing, there is great interest in understanding how institutions can more effectively meet these students' expectations and needs through programme-supported development of intercultural competence. This paper reports on a project that explored experiences and…
