Otwinowska, Agnieszka – Language Awareness, 2017
The training of language teachers still follows traditional models of teachers' competences and awareness, focusing solely on the target language. Such models are incompatible with multilingual pedagogy, whereby languages are not taught in isolation, and learners' background languages are activated to enhance the process. When teaching…

Roothooft, Hanne; Breeze, Ruth – Language Awareness, 2016
A relatively small number of studies on beliefs about oral corrective feedback (CF) have uncovered a mismatch between teachers' and students' attitudes which is potentially harmful to the language learning process, not only because students may become demotivated when their expectations are not met, but also because teachers appear to be reluctant…

Bahous, Rima N.; Nabhani, Mona Baroud; Bacha, Nahla Nola – Language Awareness, 2014

Young, Andrea S. – Language Awareness, 2014
In France, most teachers still receive scant training in how to support plurilingual children in their learning of and through the language of instruction.

Scheffler, Pawel – Language Awareness, 2011
The need for some form of explicit grammar instruction is recognised in most current approaches to second language teaching.

The results uncover three…
