Opinión del profesorado de Lengua extranjera en torno a la integración del componente cultural en el aula de idiomas - Carrillo López, María José
This paper is part of a wider research in which we study the beliefs of Second
Language Teachers about the integration of cultural aspects in the foreign language classroom.
A questionnaire were distributed among teachers in the provinces of Malaga and Granada
in order to find out what they thought on three fundamental issues: 1) the importance
that the European Union gives to the teaching of cultural aspects; 2) the relative weight that
linguistic and cultural elements have in Foreign Language Teaching; and 3) which cultural
contents should be included in the syllabus. For each item, we perform an analysis of the frequency
distribution and the existence...

Competencia intercultural en la enseñanza de lenguas extranjeras - Paricio Tato, Silvina
The present article seeks to clarify what is meant by intercultural competence
when teaching a foreign language. An introductory paragraph refers to the various researches
that have focused on studying the relationships between language and culture, and the
reasons that have led to the need to promote integrated teaching of both. Next, it points out
some key concepts on the approach or intercultural dimension applied to language teaching
and provides a conceptual framework that supports this dimension. The article concludes
with a brief indication concerning the teachers�role.
Creencias y representaciones de los profesores de lenguas extranjeras sobre la influencia de los factores motivacionales y emocionales en los alumnos y en las alumnas - Rodríguez Pérez, María de las Nieves
In the classroom context we find students with active implication on learning
a language for whom the acquisition of another language-culture may be a gratifying experience.
On the contrary, others show disinterest and difficulties. The enthusiasm of some
and the disenchantment of others is usually explained as the motivational-emotional factors
generated by learning a new language. Our question is whether such factors also influence
the two student-groups in a different way. The aim of this study is to bring forward the opinions
FL teachers have. The results shown belong to a survey performed on FL teachers who
belong to different educational stages.
A Critical Analysis of the Vocabulary in L2 Spanish Textbooks - López Jiménez, María Dolores
This study researches the treatment given to L2 vocabulary in Spanish
language textbooks. To that end, 12 textbooks (together with the teacher�s editions) at
three proficiency levels were analyzed. The results suggest that the vocabulary to be taught
lacks consistency as the selection and grading criteria are not explicitly stated in most of
the teacher�s guides. The place of publication and the proficiency level of the textbooks
influence the introduction of new words. Vocabulary teaching tends to be rather traditional
since its practice is mostly comprised of closed and open exercises and vocabulary learning
strategies are rarely present. Finally, the results of research into L2 vocabulary learning...
El uso de la lengua meta en el curso inicial de Español Lengua Extranjera (E/ LE) en Costa de Marfil - Ortega Martín, José Luis; Djandué, Bi Drombé
The use of the target language is not the same challenge in all contexts,
although in all cases is essential to achieving better results. This article summarizes the
main findings of a broader study on the use of Spanish in a context of foreign language
and in the first level of learning. The study was conducted in Ivory Coast and gave results in
line with the learning of Spanish in this country. These results led to a few proposals to increase
the use of the target language in the initial course.
Automated collection of Japanese word usage examples from a parallel and a monolingual corpus - Hmeljak Sangawa, Kristina; Erjavec, Tomaz; Kawamura, Yoshiko
Examples are an important source of information on word usage for language learners, but existing reference sources for Japanese as a second language are limited. This paper describes two projects for the automated collection of word usage examples. Examples extracted from an ad-hoc Japanese-Slovene parallel corpus were included into jaSlo, a Japanese-Slovene learners' dictionary, and examples extracted from a monolingual web-harvested 400 million word corpus of Japanese were selected to be used as supplementary examples for Chuta, a multilingualized dictionary for learners of Japanese as a second language.
Elliptical arguments: a problem in relating meaning to use - Hanks, Patrick
Corpus lexicographers working in the tradition of John Sinclair (of whom the present author is one) argue that electronic dictionaries of the future will have a duty to pay close attention to phraseology and to phraseological meaning in text. To do this, they will need to make a distinction between normal patterns of use of words and exploitations of normal uses, such as freshly coined metaphors, used for rhetorical and other effects. Electronic dictionaries will report the norms of phraseology associated wilh phraseological patterns instead of or as well as word meaning in isolation. The foundations for this approach to...
Evaluation of an automatic process for specialized web corpora collection and term extraction for Basque - Gurrutxaga Hernaiz, Antton; Leturia Azkarate, Igor; Pociello Irigoyen, Elisabete; Saralegi Urizar, Xavier; San Vicente, Iñaki
In this paper we describe the processes for collecting Basque specialized corpora in different domains
from the Internet and subsequently extracting terminology out of them, using automatic tools in both
cases. We evaluate the results of corpus compiling and term extraction by making use of a specialized
dictionary recently updated by experts. We also compare the results of the automatically collected web
corpus with those of a traditionally collected corpus, in order to analyze the usefulness of the Internet
as a reliable source of information for terminology tasks.
In Search of an Effective Model for Assessing Learning in Bilingual Education: the "Authentic Assessment" - Cantero García, Víctor; Martínez López, Juan A.
We have a commitment to provide the most efficient, transparent and coherent
evaluation procedures for bilingual education. In this articlethe authors offer all teachers
of bilingual education a theoretical as well as practical approach to the so-called authentic
assessment. Our aimisto provehow this method can be usedas an alternative to the traditional
methods of evaluating the learning-outcomes of linguistic content by the students in our
bilingual sections. This alternative requires a substantial change of focus for the teachinglearning
process, since evaluating is not equivalent to examining when it comes to quantify
results, but rather valuing the capacity of the student to solve competently the problems they

Customising a general EAP dictionary to meet learner needs - Granger, Sylviane; Paquot, Magali
In this article, we describe the Louvain EAP Dictionary (LEAD), a web-based English for Academic Purposes dictionary-cum-writing aid for non-native writers. The LEAD dictionary contains a rich description of non-technical words that express key functions in academic discourse (such as contrast, exemplification or cause and effect), with particular focus on their phraseology (collocations and recurrent phrases). The dictionary allows for both semasiological and onomasiological access. Its main originality is its customizability: the content is automatically adapted to users' needs in terms of discipline and mother tongue background.
Acquiring semantics from structured corpora to enrich an existing lexicon - Gala, Nuria; Rey, Véronique
Lexical and semantic information is crucial for NLP by and large and for building linguistic resources in particular. However, this kind of information is hard to be obtained be it manually or automatically. The difficulties come from the very nature of the information (what do we mean by "meaning"? what is "semantics"?, how are "meanings" combined and put into words?) and from the resources (how are "meanings" formally represented and displayed?). In this paper we present a methodology for automatically acquiring semantics from structured corpora (machinereadable dictionaries and free encyclopaedias on the web).
This information is used to enrich an existing...
Perfil del profesorado que aprende una lengua en los Cursos de Actualización Lingüística de las Escuelas Oficiales de Idiomas andaluzas - Torres Olalla, Daniel
Teachers� training in the field of foreign languages becomes more and more
necessary, particularly for those professionals involved in the development of the Bilingual
Centres Programme in Andalusia. This article tries to establish the profile of a group
of teachers of non-university levels of education registered in the Cursos de Actualización
Lingüística, a learning option taught in the Escuelas Oficiales de Idiomas in Andalusia, with
the aim to learn a foreign language to teach a non-linguistic subject in a second language in
a Bilingual Centre. It includes a brief reflection on how far this learning option achieves its
aim according to the profile just mentioned.
How Does University Teachers' Emotional Intelligence Relate To Their Self- Efficacy Beliefs - Sarkhosh, Mehdi; Rezaee, Abas Ali
Some studies have indicated the relationship between Emotional Intelligence
(EI) and self-efficacy beliefs at schools or language institutes. This study, sought to investigate
this association among university teachers. 105 university teachers participated in the
present study. The participants were required to complete the �Teachers� Sense of Efficacy
Scale� and the �Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire�. Correlation and regression analysis
were conducted on the data. The results of data analysis revealed that there was a strong positive
relationship between EI and self-efficacy beliefs. Furthermore, it was found that among
the fifteen components of EI, three subscales of Flexibility, Optimism and Interpersonal
Relationship were positive predictors of Efficacy beliefs.
Analysis of the Effect of Content Familiarity and Gender on English as a Foreign Language Reading Comprehension by Spanish University Students - Lahuerta Martínez, Ana Cristina
The aim of this paper is to explore the relative effects of gender and content
familiarity on English as a Foreign Language reading comprehension. Sixty-eight elementary
and intermediate level undergraduate English language students at the Faculty of Teacher
Training of the University of Oviedo participated in the study. The results of the study
show that gender and content familiarity significantly affected the students� overall comprehension
of the texts. The study appears to reject the so-called linguistic threshold hypothesis
as both the elementary level and intermediate level readers of the study could read with
better understanding when the text was familiar, irrespective of their language knowledge
and also seems...
