Learning Languages Proficiency Descriptors and Achievement Objectives
Principles of Instructed Second Language Acquisition
1: Instruction needs to ensure that learners develop both a rich repertoire of formulaic
expressions and a rule-based competence
2: Instruction needs to ensure that learners focus predominantly on meaning
3: Instruction needs to ensure that learners also focus on form
4: Instruction needs to be predominantly directed at developing implicit knowledge of the L2
while not neglecting explicit knowledge
5: Instruction needs to take into account learners' `built-in syllabus'
6: Successful instructed language learning requires extensive L2 input
7: Successful instructed language learning also requires opportunities for output
8: The opportunity to interact in the L2 is central to developing L2 proficiency
9: Instruction needs to take account of individual differences in learners
10: In assessing learners' L2 proficiency it is important to examine free as well as controlled
production
(Instructed Second Language Acquisition Professor R Ellis 2005)
Six principles of intercultural communicative language teaching and learning (iCLT)
1 iCLT integrates language and culture from the beginning;
2 iCLT engages learners in genuine social interaction;
3 iCLT encourages and develops an exploratory and reflective approach to culture and
culture-in-language;
4 iCLT fosters explicit comparisons and connections between languages and cultures;
5 iCLT acknowledges and responds appropriately to diverse learners and learning contexts;
6 iCLT emphasises intercultural communicative competence rather than native-speaker
competence.
