Also about language and learning+126When learning vocabulary in a foreign language, teachers should tell you when certain words sound like a curse word in the language. That way, using english as and example, you wouldn't get into any awkward situations by saying shit instead of sit, bitch instead of batch, whore instead of whole, etc. amirite?

Also about language and learning+70A Canadian linguist of Acadian origin,R Landry, has clearly defined two forms of bilingalism, an« additive bilingualism » which is likely to enrich the mother-language elements and on the contrary a « substractive bilingualism which weaken or impoverish the basic elements of the mother- language or the source language. Could linguistic planners use these definitions, although sketchy , in devising accurate and efficient second language learning programs? amirite?
Also about language and learning+64As a former language teacher, I submit that in order to insure a better foreign and second language learning. it is more fruitfull and rewarding to have an intrinsic motivation (love of foreign language, its sounds, its musicality,its rythm or its syntax, i,e, learning the language for its affective and intellectual value) than to have an instrumental motivation (learn a language to get a degree , a promotion or for multiple purposes external to the language itself, as a means for an extenal goal). Do you think that affectivity does play a major role in foreign or second language learning? amirite?
