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.

Simard, Daphnée; Molokopeeva, Tatiana; Zhang, Yan Qing – Canadian Modern Language Review, 2020

Considering such sociolinguistic changes in these destinations, this research examines how…

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…

Payant, Caroline – Canadian Modern Language Review, 2020
Second language (L2) writing researchers have demonstrated that bilingual writers draw on their native language to fulfill task requirements. A growing number of individuals are learning a language beyond their second, and, despite an increased interest in third/additional language (L3/Ln) development, few empirical studies have considered writing…

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,…

Lyster, Roy – Canadian Modern Language Review, 2019
Translanguaging practices come into play in social interactions between bilinguals when they are making use of all their shared linguistic resources and blending their languages in natural ways. Stemming from these practices is translanguaging pedagogy, which is designed so that students in school-based additive bilingual programs can benefit from…

Kennedy, Sara; Tromovich, Pavel – Canadian Modern Language Review, 2019
In this review article, we discuss the construct of second language (L2) comprehensibility, which refers to listeners' judgments of ease or difficulty in understanding L2 speech. We first briefly describe intelligibility and comprehensibility, two measures that capture listener understanding of L2 speech. We then present evidence that supports the…

Derwing, Tracey M.; Thomson, Ronald I. – Canadian Modern Language Review, 2019
Tracey Derwing and Ron Thomson reflect on the growth of Canadian L2 pronunciation research from the early 1990s onward. Although many phoneticians and language educators called for pronunciation instruction (PI) for decades, in the early 1980s little empirical research existed to inform pronunciation pedagogy, despite an influx of Vietnamese…

Wong, Kevin M.; Mak, Pauline – Canadian Modern Language Review, 2019
Self-assessments are instructional tools with the potential to enhance self-regulatory and language-learning processes in students in the writing classroom. Although widely studied in the first language context, self-assessment research in L2 writing contexts is relatively unexplored. Yet recent research indicates that the demands of writing in a…

This article capitalizes on the notion of linguistic risk-taking by focusing on a new pedagogical initiative at the University of Ottawa, an institution where courses, programs, and services in both English and French are available.
