van Rijt, Jimmy; Coppen, Peter-Arno – Language Awareness, 2017
L1 grammar education is internationally criticised because of its pedagogy and its curriculum content. There is a gap between linguistic theory and school grammar in which the latter rarely makes use of possibly relevant insights from the former. At the same time, linguistics itself has never seriously undertaken attempts to identify the…

Roothooft, Hanne; Breeze, Ruth – Language Awareness, 2016
A relatively small number of studies on beliefs about oral corrective feedback (CF) have uncovered a mismatch between teachers' and students' attitudes which is potentially harmful to the language learning process, not only because students may become demotivated when their expectations are not met, but also because teachers appear to be reluctant…

Lasagabaster, David; Doiz, Aintzane – Language Awareness, 2016
Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) has become a very popular approach in the belief that it may help to improve students' foreign language proficiency. Although some research has been conducted, there is a dearth of longitudinal studies on students' awareness of their language learning process in CLIL programmes. In this paper, 221…

Yalçin, Sebnem; Çeçen, Sevdeger; Erçetin, Gülcan – Language Awareness, 2016
Working memory (WM) as a key component of language aptitude has become a topical issue, with some going so far as to argue that WM can replace language aptitude. Research that specifically investigates the relationship between WM and language aptitude is rather limited. This study explores the determinants of language aptitude, with a focus on WM…

Bijvoet, Ellen; Fraurud, Kari – Language Awareness, 2016
To account for the full range of language use in contemporary multilingual urban contexts, the notion of target language (TL) needs to be reconsidered. In studies of second language acquisition and language variation, taking TL for granted implies that people agree on what constitutes "good" language, or the standard norm. The TL of…

Schaeffer-Lacroix, Eva – Language Awareness, 2016
Johns reports in his text "Kibbitzing one-to-ones" (1997) that corpus-informed metatalk with a foreign language expert helps apprentice writers to make progress in independent text revision. Expecting this progress to be based on the development of expert-like ways to observe language features, I integrated Johns' so-called kibbitzing…
