Hiroshima JALT:

Psycholinguists and Second Language Ability

Date: Sunday, June 18th, 2006 Time: 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Jun Yamada (Professor, Hiroshima University)

The ability to imitate seems to involve not only general intelligence but also L2 ability. A pscholinguistic experiment recently found that English majors, in contrast to non-English majors, produced utterances closer to those of model speakers. The implications for the classroom are explained. Significant Q & A is guaranteed. The talk will be followed by My Share, in which everyone is encouraged to talk 5-10 minutes about any langauge-learning topic.
