First of all, thank you so much for your interest in this blog! I know I haven’t posted in quite some time, but I assure you, new entries are coming! There has been some transition since I finished my series on translanguaging (at least for now- have a look at the first entry here), and I’ve been holding off a bit to see how things settle out.
In the hopefully not-too-distant future, I will get back to writing posts in which I attempt to present different pieces of language acquisition theory while making practical/applicable connections where possible. To that end, I am curious about your areas of interest. What topics in second langauge education would you like to read about?
It will be a little while before I start to write these new posts, but I want to get some ideas percolating. (There are some exciting changes in the wind, which I am very much looking forward to sharing with you as soon as I am able)
In the mean time, over the next month or so, I hope to open some discussion on some of the concepts and pedagogies that are being discussed in my program (for more information on that, see my About page). I also plan to share links to some resources that I find useful for language teaching and/or learning.
Hopefully you will continue to find the material informative and useful, and-as always-I encourage and welcome your thoughts and comments!
