Trahey, Martha; Spada, Nina – Canadian Modern Language Review, 2020
English language learners (ELLs), especially those outside major cities in North America, are integrated into mainstream classrooms, often without targeted language support. Form-focused instruction (FFI) is an approach to language instruction in which learner attention is focused on language form during meaning-based activities. Although FFI has…

Carver, Julie; Kim, YouJin – Canadian Modern Language Review, 2020
The majority of task repetition studies have focused on learners' oral production, but whether task repetition can promote learning in other skill areas such as writing remains to be seen. The current study compared the effect of procedural and content repetition on French learners' accurate production of the passé composé during collaborative…

Grey, Sarah; Jackson, Carrie – Canadian Modern Language Review, 2020
Linguistic self-confidence is an underlying factor in L2 motivation and positive L2 learning outcomes. However, few studies have investigated its hypothesized relationship to objective L2 learning outcomes or the relationship between self-confidence and cognitive and affective individual differences that influence L2 learning. In this study,…

Strachan, Lauren; Trofimovich, Pavel – Canadian Modern Language Review, 2019
Previous research has shown that English regular past-tense forms are difficult to perceive, yet perception studies to date have used experimentally manipulated input, and none has investigated how contextual cues, beyond temporal adverbials, affect the perception of the regular past. This study investigated whether second language (L2) learners…

Leonard, Karen – Canadian Modern Language Review, 2019
In the L2 fluency literature there is considerable debate over how best to operationally define pauses and how different pause measures relate to L2 proficiency. This creates a challenge for researchers interested in L2 fluency, and particularly those who are working with groups that vary in L2 proficiency. This article addresses these issues by…

Cobb, Tom; Horst, Marlise – Canadian Modern Language Review, 2019
The vocabulary research of the 1980s and 1990s brought a breath of fresh air into the language classroom. Teachers in many remote EFL locations had long suspected that vocabulary was their learners' main challenge, but there was little research evidence to confirm this or say what to do about it. Then, suddenly, work by Nation, Laufer, Meara,…

This study investigated the effect of input-based tasks on the acquisition of vocabulary and grammar by beginner-level learners of L2 French and reported the introduction of task-based teaching as an innovation in a state secondary school. The experimental group (n = 19) completed a series of focused input-based language tasks, taught by their…

Bontogon, Megan; Arppe, Antti; Antonsen, Lene; Thunder, Dorothy; Lachler, Jordan – Canadian Modern Language Review, 2018
Intelligent computer assisted language learning (ICALL) applications for Indigenous languages are a relatively new avenue for computer assisted language learning (CALL). CALL allows language learners to practise a wide range of grammatical exercises and receive feedback on their answers outside of class time. ICALL is essential for dynamically…

Candry, Sarah; Elgort, Irina; Deconinck, Julie; Eyckmans, June – Canadian Modern Language Review, 2017
The majority of L2 vocabulary studies concentrate on learning word meaning and provide learners with opportunities for semantic elaboration (i.e., focus on word meaning). However, in initial vocabulary learning, engaging in structural elaboration (i.e., focus on word form) with a view to acquiring L2 word form is equally important. The present…
