Language, Interaction and Acquisition

Language, Interaction and Acquisition

LIA is a bilingual English-French journal that publishes original theoretical and empirical research of high scientific quality at the forefront of current debates concerning language acquisition. It covers all facets of language acquisition among different types of learners and in diverse learning situations, with particular attention to oral speech and/or to signed languages. Topics include the acquisition of one or more foreign languages, of one or more first languages, and of sign languages, as well as learners’ use of gestures during speech; the relationship between language and cognition during acquisition; bilingualism and situations of linguistic contact – for example pidginisation and creolisation. The bilingual nature of LIA aims at reaching readership in a wide international community, while simultaneously continuing to attract intellectual and linguistic resources stemming from multiple scientific traditions in Europe, thereby remaining faithful to its original French anchoring. LIA is the direct descendant of the French-speaking journal AILE.

FluentU

FluentU

FluentU is a new way to learn Chinese through authentic video content like music videos, movie trailers, news, and inspiring talks. With engaging and immersive content, users are empowered to learn with fun videos exhibiting the diversity and vibrancy of modern Chinese culture.

Traditional tools like textbooks have been essential. But it has been found that people learn best through rich, engaging experiences. It's easy to remember words when they're reinforced by experiences that move you. Early exposure to engaging content helps prevent learners from giving up before they're fluent. 

A site that can deliver such rich experiences, supported by the right set of tools, can transform language learning.

I know some artists who go to perform in other countries who don't even make the effort to say 'hello' in the local language. I think it's important to know a few words - just a few!
