Volume 7, Number 2

Sin categoría 8 Comments »

In this new November issue of Plurilinkgua we would like to share with you the contributions we received from teachers and students. First, we present a teaching technique designed by Professor Cesar Eduardo Carrillo. It is about mental images to increase vocabulary in a foreign language. This is a creative idea that can be implemented in the classroom without any problem. This time we included 3 academic papers in the articles section, 2 of them are reflection essays. The first one was written by Jesús Amparo López and Adriana Silva, they highlight the advantages university students have when a foreign language is spoken.

These authors support their judgments with research studies about university students who need to become linguistically competent in a second language. The second article by Priscilla Núñez, is a revision of the most important methods and approaches employed in foreign language teaching which have allowed the expansion and professionalization of language teaching. The third paper is about translation issues, its accessibility for vulnerable groups . We also include two reviews of materials about language learning: the CD Rencontres Interculturelles and the book Learning new languages. a guide to a second language acquisition. At the end we added a full paper of a lecture delivered at that 29th National Convention and 6th Central American and Caribbean Convention- MEXTESOL, Monterrey, NL., on October 18th in 2002. We hope you find these contributions helpful for your academic practice.

We appreciate your visit to Plurilinkgua, and encourage you to keep on reading us, and to contribute by sending us your unpublished techniques, activities, articles, book reviews and academic events reviews.
