Cognitive and Metacognitive Strategies in Language Learning: Mass Input Approach
 
17:51
In this video I discuss the idea that language learners need to use cognitive and metacognitive strategies. I discuss this in relation to a mass input approach (or what Mike Campbell calls the "Mass Sentence Method") by considering what sorts of reading strategies can be used to learn vocabulary and grammar by exploring the text for patterns: word families, collocations, repeated structures, and any other perceptible patterns. I relate this to the idea of 'metacognitive' skills which learners also need to have.

A New Way to Learn to Read English | Narda Pitkethly | TEDxSunValley
 
09:33
Narda Pitkethly created a system that profoundly simplifies learning how to read. Watch how her system reduces illiteracy and many of its negative consequences. Narda Pitkethly moved to Japan after college and discovered the Japanese had created a simple method of learning to read, called Hiragana. Through their method, Narda learned to read Japanese in a week. Within three months, her comprehension allowed her to communicate freely in her home city of Fukuoka. In 1988 Narda moved from Japan to Sun Valley because the small community and year-round outdoor activities enticed her. An accomplished glassblower, she often travels to Boise to create works of art. When her daughter was identified as a challenged reader in the first grade, Narda discovered that English is one of the hardest languages in the world to learn to read, even for native speakers. Narda analyzed the English alphabet to understand why it is so difficult (1 in 4 children grow up without learning to read). She organized the letters in the same way the Japanese organized their Hiragana characters. Narda reveals an approach to the English language you have never seen before. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

IELTS – 3 Reading Strategies
 
16:51
Is the IELTS Reading section very challenging for you? Can't finish all the readings and questions before the time is up? In this lesson, you will learn three approaches to the IELTS Reading section and their pros and cons. The goal of this lesson is to help you finish the test on time without compromising your understanding of the readings. Learn how to read less while answering more questions correctly. After watching, make sure to do the quiz to test your understanding. Good luck on your test! https://www.engvid.com/ielts-3-reading-strategies/ https://www.GoodLuckIELTS.com/ https://www.writetotop.com/ WATCH NEXT IELTS Writing: The 3 Essay Types https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJ-Vyqxn1To TRANSCRIPT Hi again. Welcome back to www.engvid.com. I'm Adam. Today's lesson is about IELTS. As usual, with IELTS lessons, I will be speaking a little bit faster than normal. It's good for your listening practice. But if you're not taking the IELTS, you can still listen and try to follow us as we go through this section. So, let's begin. Today, I'm going to look at the IELTS reading section. I'm going to look at three different approaches to tackling the IELTS reading section. Students always ask me: "What should I do with the reading? How do I do it? How can I finish on time? How can I answer more questions?" Right? So I'm going to give you three approaches, three different ways to try to do the IELTS. Okay? We're going to look at three different ways. They're completely different from each other. The most important thing I want to tell you before we start: you have to know what works for you. Okay? One of these approaches will work for you; the others may not. Practice all three. If you're comfortable with one and it seems to work for you, and your score seems to be getting better, stick with that one and practice that one. Don't try to do all three each time. Figure out which one works, and just practice that one the most. Okay? The most obvious one and the first one we're going to talk about: read the entire passage, and then tackle the questions. Now, a few things to say, good and bad, about this approach. So, you have 20 minutes, let's say, that you're going to start from the first passage, you're going to do about 17 minutes; the second passage, you're going to spend 20 minutes; the last passage, you're going to spend 23, 24, 25 minutes. So, you have to do this very fast. So: can you read the entire passage and do the questions in that timeframe? Okay? That's the question you must ask yourself. Are you a fast reader? Can you comprehend everything you're reading? How is your vocabulary? Things like this. Some people, they must read everything, from beginning to end, and then go to the questions. But they can also keep; they can retain the information they've read, so when they go to the questions, they know where to go back and look for the answers. Now, the good part about this is that you have all the information in your head once you've read the entire passage. The bad part is that you're going to be reading the passage twice. Okay? Or not the whole passage, but you're going to read big chunks of the passage twice. You'll have read it the first time, you'll go to the questions, and then you'll be reading again to find the answers, because you're looking for specific words now. When you get to the questions, sometimes it's only one word difference from what you read in the passage. So, do I recommend this? Yes and no. If you're a fast reader and you can comprehend, then yes, do that. If you're not a fast reader, then no, don't do this. You'll be wasting too much time and reading more than you need to. What I'm going to do with these two approaches is show you how to read less. So you don't need to read the entire passage; you just need to read the areas that contain the answers to the questions. So, the second approach: go straight to the questions. You look at the question. First of all, understand the type of the question. Is it a multiple choice? Is it a fill-in-the-blank, like a summary? Are you looking for like headings for each paragraph? Are you looking for the title? Etc. Figure out what you're looking for, read the question carefully, pick out the keywords in the question or the key idea in the question, and then scan the passage. Don't read the passage. Just quickly look everywhere for where that information ought to be.
The Reading Strategy Every English Learner Needs to Know (Step-by-Step Guide)
 
07:51
This lesson explains how you can improve your English through reading. This is a powerful method so be sure to watch the whole video! Get your fluency book here: https://www.tofluency.com/book (it's FREE to download!) Here is a question that a lot of learners struggle with: do you stop reading to look up the definition or just continue? This highlights the difference between: Intensive reading: when you read to learn new words and analyze the language. Extensive reading: where you don't stop and you read for pleasure. More on my reading for fluency method soon but first... HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT BOOK FOR YOU: 1. The genre: the category. Choose books that interest you. 2. The level of the book: if it's too difficult to understand, you won't enjoy it and it won't help you. Choose graded readers. See here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-o7DTuOYn0o 3. Books you enjoy: if you don't enjoy the book, put it down. FINDING BOOKS (GREAT TIP!) Go to https://www.amazon.com and "look inside" a book that you may enjoy. Start reading it and get it if you think it's appropriate. Find books with audiobooks too. INTENSIVE vs EXTENSIVE READING: I recommend that you do both. Here is how: 1. Read extensively but highlight words (sentences that you don't understand) 2. Do this for each chapter or for a certain number of pages 3. Go back and look up anything you don't understand BONUS TIP: Take the sentences that you have highlighted and use Anki - https://apps.ankiweb.net/ - to create flashcards. This is a way to internalize the new language and grammar. More on this here: https://www.tofluency.com/speaking/ - or get the premium method below.

How to improve your English by reading
 
10:28
How can reading improve your English? What reading strategies can you use to improve your vocabulary, pronunciation, fluency, and enunciation? In this instructional and motivational video, I tell you how picking up a book can not only help you to improve your vocabulary but your speaking confidence and presentation skills as well. Watch the lesson, and let me know some of your favourite books in the comments section! https://www.engvid.com/how-to-improve-your-english-by-reading/ TRANSCRIPT Hey, everyone. I'm Alex. Thanks for clicking, and welcome to this lesson on "How to Improve Your English By Reading". So, it might be very obvious how reading can help you improve, you know, your speaking in English, particularly your vocabulary, but there are a number of reasons and a number of things that reading regularly and reading in specific ways can actually help you to improve your English, and also not only like your reading English, but your ability to speak properly or to speak confidently. And again, this applies not only to English as a second language learners, but also to English speakers, period. So pick up a book, and here's how picking up a book can help you to improve your English. So, number one: You can improve your English by picking up any book, reading out loud, and exaggerating what you're reading. You might think: "This sounds ridiculous", but if you are a second language learner, this is a fantastic way to improve your enunciation, your pronunciation, and presentation skills. Even if you're not a second language learner... English as a second language learner. So, for example, it doesn't matter what type of genre you like, what type of books you like. Me, personally, I love science-fiction, I love fantasy. And I can turn to, you know, pages in any of these books and read out loud, exaggerate what I'm saying, and just the act of doing this, of speaking out loud what I'm reading makes me feel, again, more confident speaking in front of an audience, for example. So I'll just open to a random page here and... Okay, so in this book, just so you know, there's a horse, his name is Artaq. And it says: "Artaq did not hesitate. He veered toward the Silver River. The wolves came after, soundless, fluid, black terror. Will was sure that this time they would not escape. Allanon was no longer there to help them. They were all alone." Now, what you notice is I'm... I'm trying to exaggerate: "They were all alone." Even like my l's. And focus on every letter when you're reading, because this type of reading, reading out loud, exaggerating, if you are a professional, this is a great way to build that clarity in your speech when you're speaking in front of people, and pacing yourself, how fast you speak as well is important, obviously, when you're giving a presentation. This second part... Again, this one can apply to both native speakers of English, but it's more specifically geared towards English as a second language speakers, and that is: Paying attention to word endings. And especially "ed" and "s" endings. So, specifically past tense words, like "wanted", okay? Or plural words, like "hawks" instead of one hawk, because a lot of, again, English as a second language learners sometimes forget the "ed" ending when they're reading. I've taught classes where, you know, students have to read out loud, and they're so focused on reading and getting the words correct, but the pronunciation, they just drop the ends of words sometimes, especially "ed", especially "s". So let me see if I can quickly find an example. Okay, here's one: "When he stayed on his feet..." When he... Oh, why am I pointing? You can't see that. You can't see that. So: "When he stayed on his feet" this is one part of the sentence. Again, you have the verb "stayed", so some new learners of English will sometimes read that as: "When he stay", "When he stay", and they just drop the end. So please, please, please focus on those "ed" and "s" endings, and this will really help your fluency, the ability of others to understand you, as well as your enunciation. "Stayed", okay? Number three: Pay attention to punctuation. Now, punctuation refers to the use of commas, periods, question marks, exclamation marks when you're reading. By paying attention to these things, you can actually focus on improving your intonation and your fluency; two specific things. So, the intonation refers to the up and down movement of your voice when you are saying something or reading something. So, for example, you know, raise... In the second part I said: "Raise intonation for yes or no questions." So if you notice when you're reading that, you know, this person is asking a yes or no question, then your voice should be moving up at the end. And, you know in speaking, this also improves that. So, for example, in this book there is... Okay, here's a yes or no question, the question is: "Did you find her?"

TPRS Storytelling - The Best Language Learning Method Ever!
 
06:30
TPR Storytelling (Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling or TPRS) is a method of teaching foreign languages. TPRS lessons use a mixture of reading and storytelling to help students learn a foreign language in a classroom setting. The method works in three steps: in step one the new vocabulary structures to be learned are taught using a combination of translation, gestures, and personalized questions; in step two those structures are used in a spoken class story; and finally, in step three, these same structures are used in a class reading. Throughout these three steps, the teacher will use a number of techniques to help make the target language comprehensible to the students, including careful limiting of vocabulary, constant asking of easy comprehension questions, frequent comprehension checks, and very short grammar explanations known as "pop-up grammar". Many teachers also assign additional reading activities such as free voluntary reading, and there have been several easy novels written by TPRS teachers for this purpose. Proponents of TPR Storytelling, basing their argument on the second language acquisition theories of Stephen Krashen, hold that the best way to help students develop both fluency and accuracy in a language is to expose them to large amounts of comprehensible input. The steps and techniques in TPR Storytelling help teachers to provide this input by making the language spoken in class both comprehensible and engaging. In addition, TPR Storytelling uses many concepts from mastery learning. Each lesson is focused on just three vocabulary phrases or fewer, enabling teachers to concentrate on teaching each phrase thoroughly. Teachers also make sure that the students internalize each phrase before moving on to new material, giving additional story lessons with the same vocabulary when necessary. TPR Storytelling is unusual in that it is a grassroots movement among language teachers. After being developed by Blaine Ray in the 1990s, the method has gained popular appeal with language teachers who claim that they can reach more students and get better results than they could with previous methods. It is enjoying increasing attention from publishers and academic institutions. A number of practitioners publish their own materials and teaching manuals, and training in TPR Storytelling is generally offered at workshops by existing TPRS teachers rather than at teacher training college.

This lesson comes from a request by Aditya from Maharashtra, India. Aditya says he is preparing for a competitive exam and he has to do reading comprehension exercises as part of the exam, and he wants to know the best way to do these. Before we start, if you want to request a lesson, just leave a comment. In your comment, tell me your name, and I will mention you in the video. OK, in this lesson I will give you some important tips and strategies for reading comprehension exercises. I will give you a reading plan that you can follow, and there are exercises in this lesson for you to practice. Alright, now my teaching experience is mostly with exams like the IELTS and TOEFL, but the tips that I give you in this lesson will help you in any exam situation. So the first thing is: when it comes to reading in an exam, budget your time. That means: you should know how many reading passages there are in the exam, how many exercises there are and how much time you have. In the IELTS exam, for example, there are three reading passages and you have one hour to do all of them. So then divide your time amongst those passages – for IELTS, you might spend roughly 20 minutes per passage. In some exams, one passage might be shorter or easier, and another passage might be longer or more difficult. In that case, obviously, you should plan to spend less time on the short passage, and more time on the long passage. And you should time yourself – if you are allowed to wear a watch in your exam, look at your watch and keep track of the time. If you plan for 20 minutes per passage, stick to that plan. Now, if you’re not allowed to wear a watch, then use the clock in the room or hall, or ask the invigilators how much time you have left. Alright, that’s the first thing: budgeting your time. So now the exam starts – and you have the first reading passage in front of you – what do you do? Well, I’ll tell you what you should NOT do – don’t start at the beginning and read slowly to the finish. Many students do this – and the problem is that when you get to the end, you will have forgotten a lot of the details in the middle, and when you read the questions, you have to go back and read the passage again to find the answers. Instead, here’s the plan that you should follow: your first step in reading should be to skim the passage. What does that mean? Well, skimming is actually something that we do with milk. It’s when you heat or boil milk, and the fat rises to the top in the form of cream. Removing that layer of fat is called skimming. When it comes to reading, skimming means to read the surface of the text quickly to understand the overall message. So if there’s a heading or title to the passage, and if there are subheadings, read all of these first. They will tell you the subject of the text. Then read the first sentence of each paragraph – they will give you a good idea of the overall message. Let’s practice this. You see two paragraphs on the screen, but only the first sentence in each paragraph is visible. Stop the video, read the sentences and try to understand the main topic in each paragraph. Alright, so what do you think the topic of the whole passage might be? It could be the negative effects of social media on children. What about the first paragraph? What is it about? Well it says that using social media can affect a child’s writing skills. And the second paragraph? It says that some people don’t agree with this – that is, the first paragraph – for two reasons: scientific reasons and practical reasons (pragmatic).

Reading Strategies in Learning Languages Tips
 
00:31
http://localofflineconsultant.info/ Reading Strategies in Learning Languages Tips Do you think that you can't learn a new language? Think again. Our brains maintain the capacity to soak up new knowledge of all types far into our advanced years. No matter what your background or past learning experience, you CAN learn to speak another language using these six quick techniques. 1. Take a short course: A number of language courses are immediately available in most areas at a local community college or university. 2. Mimicking: "Mom, he's mocking me!" Have you ever heard this complaint when one sibling repeated everything the other said? One imitating word - for - word the speech, sounds even actions of the other? It's called mimicking and it's so effective you'll be using this technique to get talking in record time yourself. 3. Reading Aloud: One of the most effective language-learning tricks 4. Watch TV: If you have cable, is there a station broadcast in the language you're interested in? 5. Listen to Music: In Japan, English students karaoke the Beatles. In Latin America, students mimic Bruce Springsteen. In Africa, the Backstreet Boys rule the airwaves. Lip-syncing popular songs is all the rage for English language learners, so why don't you turn the tables and use it to your advantage. Check at music shops and bookstores for song CDs and tapes. Ask around for recommendations on where recordings in your target language might be available. 6. Read: Stop at the library for a grammar book and some reading material. The grammar book will be an infrequent guide through those rough spots when the target language grammar differs substantially from English.

LEARNING STRATEGIES_ METACOGNITION AND COGNITION
 
02:50
1st SLIDE Title: Learning strategies: cognition and metacognition. Pablo Gomez and Alberto Leal 2nd SLIDE PABLO: Ey Alberto, what happens? ALBERTO: I’m sad because I try and try, but I fail to understand what learning strategies are. PABLO: Never mind, if you want, we can learn it together. Basically, learning strategies are efforts made by learners to enhance or assist their language learning experience. Do you know what elements are attributed to these strategies or efforts? ALBERTO: absolutely, there are the following: a. They involve choice on the part of the learner; b. Besides, they involve conscious selection; that is, the learner is aware of deciding to use a strategy; c. Moreover, They are goal directed (for instance, they are purposeful in nature and geared toward task completion) d. Finally, They are effortful. And as you know, there are five types of learning strategies, which are metacognitive, affective, social, cognitive and memory strategies; but we are going to focus on metacognitive and cognitive strategies. 3rd SLIDE PABLO: ok let me check it on my computer. Right, here it is the information about metacognitive strategies: Learners use this resource in order to plan, control and assess their own development. Besides, it means an especial type of knowledge, a triple knowledge: to know what learning is, to know how learning better and to know yourself, your feelings, your emotions, your attitudes and your aptitudes. So, there are many examples: a. Thinking about the aims of an exercise or a task. b. Self-assessment. c. And trying to put in practise what they have learned to gain knowledge. I don’t understand what exactly cognitive strategies are… Alberto, could you help me please? 4th SLIDE ALBERTO: Of course, listen to me and note down: These are mental processes, conscious or unconscious, with which the understanding of language, its assimilation, its storage in memory, its recovery and its later use are improved. Learning a new language means, on the one hand, to understand the content of the messages and texts they read. And, on the other hand, to understand new rules and new linguistic patterns. Some examples of cognitive strategies could be: a. Comparison between a structure of the new language and the equivalent in the native language. b. Elaborating an outline of what has been learned. c. Underlining the main passages of a text. 5th SLIDE ALBERTO: At least!! We have learned all about this topic. PABLO: And you? Have you learned with us? We expect it. BOTH: Byeeeeeeee.

Language learning - The Most Effective Method Of All
 
14:18
There is lots of research and discussion on the most effective way to learn languages. The answer is, whatever you enjoy doing with the language. Transcript: Hi there, Steve Kaufmann here. First of all, I want to say that I did a webcam interview with Luca, the wonderful Italian polyglot. We are going to put it up here at my YouTube channel, but I’m waiting until I’m away because while I’m away I can’t do any videos. I’m going to be in Australia and New Zealand and so Alex is going to put up some pictures. I think Luca and I went at it for about 40 minutes or so, so it’s going to be at least four sessions. So that’s when you’ll be seeing those interviews that I did with Luca, just so there’s not a blank for a whole month. I want to talk today, in the subject of language learning, about something that’s kind of been running around in my mind. I come up with all these things that are the key to language learning and I may have used this before, I don’t know, but it suddenly dawned on me that the most important thing is, is it fun. Do you enjoy doing it? I mentioned this in my 7 Secrets to Language Learning, I think the first one was spend the time and the second was to do things that you enjoy doing. Study the full transcript on LingQ: https://goo.gl/pRgnrD Timelines: 0:04 web-cam interview with Luca Lampariello. 0:42 The most important thing is fun. 1:22 The gold-list method by David James review. 4:05 My experience with the gold-list method. 4:49 It works if you enjoy it. 5:42 Time is the most important criteria. 6:09 Does the gold list method work for me? 7:00 Is listening worth spending time? 7:56 You have to find what you actually like doing. 8:19 My way of doing flashcards. 9:10 Creating Lists VS Reading & Listening. 10:46 Passive vocabulary will activate when it’s necessary. 12:46 Finding the content you enjoy is crucial.

Learning to Read in a Second Language
 
01:00:15
Fred Genesee gives the closing plenary at the 2008 Immersion Education Conference. Reading is fundamental to successful education. Reading competence is both an end in itself and a means to an end. A primary role of schools is to teach students how to read and, at the same time, learning to read serves academic development as students must read academic material in order to develop knowledge and competence in academic domains. In recent years, there has been substantial in research on reading acquisition in monolinguals and, as a result, our understanding of reading acquisition has advanced considerably. This has also brought with it implications for teaching reading. There have also been considerable advances in research on learning to read in a second language. This research has taken on important practical implications because of the growing number of students in American schools who are not native speakers of English. This presentation will summarize research findings over the last 25 years on second language reading acquisition in both minority language students acquiring reading competence in English as a second language and English-speaking immersion students acquiring reading competence in French as a second language. In brief, the evidence indicates that: (a) reading acquisition is a complex process that changes over grades; (b) the acquisition of competence in reading is cumulative so that early acquired skills are important for the acquisition of later skills; (c) learning to read in a second language is similar to learning to read in a first language in some important ways; (d) there are important differences in first and second language reading acquisition; and (e) predictors of reading success in a first language are fundamentally the same as predictors of success at reading in a second language. The implications of these findings for assessment, instruction, and remediation of students with reading difficulties will be discussed.
