LANGUAGES ACADEMY FOR ABROAD

Descripition:

Presented here is a model of second language learner profiles based on individual language learner aptitudes and their outcomes in oral proficiency gains. The data was collected on students (N = 39) who participated in the same study abroad experience during one semester abroad, yet demonstrate strikingly different outcomes in terms of individual aptitudes and their gains made in oral proficiency. Four case studies are outlined to highlight the differential outcomes based on language learner profiles and suggestions are made how to identify individuals with greater needs during the acquisition process to facilitate more gains. Study abroad directors, language departments, international study abroad programs and language instructors are all key players in the experience students have while abroad and can have an impact on both the language learning situation and the outcomes for participants. By being informed of students’ language learning and personal aptitudes, both cognitive and affective, all these players can better help students make decisions and increase their potential for improved language skills.
