20211023T0840 20211023T0930 Asia/Ho_Chi_Minh Keynote speech: THE MISSING PIECE OF THE PUZZLE

(Recorded will be updated soon)

This presentation will present the 'missing piece of the puzzle' for language teachers and students. The talk starts by surveying what we know about language learning and teaching and reviews the linguistic parameters under which this learning must take place. There will then be a review of the current state of EFL to show how we, as an industry, present language to students in a linear manner based on a 'one-hit learning model' of language learning. Recent research into lexical analysis and vocabulary learning will highlight the relatively little recycling of vocabulary, the lack of attention to collocation, colligation and lexical phrases in general in typical EFL courses. This vastly underestimates the amount of language students need to meet for acquisition to take place. The talk will also highlight the conditions under which vocabulary can be acquired. The final section of the talk will show how teachers, students and curriculum designers can provide the missing massive amounts of exposure students need to consolidate their language knowledge to enable long term acquisition to take place which in turn enables students to speak and write.
