Mohammed-Ahmed, Hamid – Applied Language Learning, 2021
Multimodal approaches to second-language learning can boost language proficiency (Ajayi, 2009) by providing foreign-language learners with greater exposure to the target language's culture, enabling multiple-literacy competencies in the target language, and appealing to students' learning preferences. This article aims to present a…

Stovicek, Thomas W. – Applied Language Learning, 2021
Recent empirical research in sociolinguistics and social psychology has established the existence of the socio-psychological phenomena known as linguistic stereotyping (LS) and reverse linguistic stereotyping (RLS), which have an implicit or unconscious effect on listeners' perception of speech and speakers. Despite such findings, little research…

Holman, Don – Applied Language Learning, 2021
Whereas major research universities may accommodate programs of study in Arabic, Chinese, or Persian, regional universities and liberal arts colleges have struggled to adapt to a wider and more complex array of world languages and literatures in the 21st century. Many have been forced to choose between radically restructuring or closing programs…

González-Bueno, Manuela – Applied Language Learning, 2021
A new technique to teach language grammar is proposed. It consists of the blending of two previously existing techniques--VanPatten's (1996) Processing Instruction (PI) and Adair-Hauck and Donato's (2002) Presentation, Attention, Co-construct, and Extension (PACE) Model. The result is the S-PACE Model, which incorporates the whole-language…

Choi, Jin Soo – Applied Language Learning, 2021
This study examined the impact of the manipulated task complexity (Robinson 2001a, 2001b, 2007, 2011; Robinson & Gilabert, 2007) on second language (L2) speech comprehensibility. I examined whether manipulated task complexity (a) impacts L2 speech comprehensibility, (b) aligns with L2 speakers' perception of task difficulty (cognitive…

Gan, Zhengdong; He, Jinbo; Liu, Fulan; Xie, Qing – Applied Language Learning, 2020
Although substantial research has examined how teachers respond to students' linguistic errors, the motivational influence of feedback practices in foreign language education has received relatively little attention. Drawing on recent feedback theories of educational assessment (e.g., Hattie & Timperley, 2007; Carless, 2017) and second…

Gong, Zhiqi – Applied Language Learning, 2020
Learning a second language (L2) is not merely mastering an additional linguistic system, but rather learning a new way of conceptualizing the world. Grammatical development does not always align simultaneously with conceptual development in L2. That explains why L2 learners may produce sentences that are grammatically correct, but pragmatically…

Miller, Zachary F.; Crowther, Dustin – Applied Language Learning, 2020
Using a case study design, we compared two prior-service cadets learning Portuguese at a United States (U.S.) military academy on how they dealt with aspects of foreign language learning (FLL). In particular, we explored how three specific components contributed to the formation of the cadets' second language (L2) motivational selves. These were…

Mitchell, Claire – Applied Language Learning, 2020
In today's interconnected and globalized world, there is a need for pedagogies that can "successfully prepare learners for intercultural encounters" (Drewelow, 2017, p. 255). In particular, instructional approaches that focus on cultivating learners' global competence, that is, the ability to communicate in more than one language with…

Cheng, Yonghong; Ma, Yibing; Wang, Yan – Applied Language Learning, 2019
Abundant research has been conducted on the relationship between student learning styles and teacher teaching styles. However, the research on the relationship between teachers' learning styles and their choice of instructional strategies is scarce. To understand this relationship better, this study seeks to learn whether there is a statistically…

Pardo Ballester, Cristina – Applied Language Learning, 2019
This article examines the use of technology-mediated, task-based language teaching (TBLT) in a hybrid environment as an instructional approach in an intermediate-level Spanish course. It (a) evaluates elements of a hybrid course that was developed with computer-assisted language learning (CALL) materials to help learners improve their Spanish,…

Tang, Xiaofei – Applied Language Learning, 2019
Digital technology has great potential for second language (L2) pragmatics learning as it creates communicative contexts for learners to practice L2s. However, despite the growing interest in technology enhanced learning, the efficacy of using technology on L2 pragmatics remains unknown. This paper examines the role of technology in L2 pragmatics…

Colovic-Markovic, Jelena – Applied Language Learning, 2019
This classroom-based study investigates whether students who receive explicit instruction make more gains over time and more improvement to produce academic formulas in controlled (c-test) and uncontrolled (essay) situations, respectively, than those who do not receive such intervention. Whereas both groups improved over time, the treatment group…
