Abstract This case study examined a diary written by a Japanese senior high school student while he was studying abroad in the US for a year. His writings exhibited two types of texts throughout the year: code-mixed texts, in which a mixture of Japanese and English is used, and code-switched texts, in which only English is used, in a single sentence. The diary was examined to identify to what extent the emergence of content words under spontaneous written production (n = 1,716) could be predicte...

Abstract Previous research has addressed L2 writing development in relation to form (e.g., complexity, accuracy, fluency) and holistic measures. Despite the academic interest in these formal and global features, however, researchers have been dissatisfied with the measurements that typically assess writing through quantitative criteria (e.g., Ortega, 2015 ). What is needed is not mere numbers, but something far richer that can explain what exactly each number means in terms of writers’ meaning-m...

Abstract Auditory resources can make language learning more effective. This quantitative study examined the impact of verbal and nonverbal auditory resources via a multimedia presentation for explicit foreign language (FL) vocabulary learning. We compared the effectiveness of four learning conditions, in which words 216 Polish speakers were exposed to new English words provided with verbal or nonverbal auditory resources: (1) pronunciation, (2) sound effects, (3) pronunciation plus sound effects...

Abstract Continuing professional development (CPD) means that language teachers need to keep updating their knowledge and skills continuously throughout their careers. This paper reports on a study of the CPD experiences of 250 teachers of English as a foreign language (EFL) in secondary schools in Indonesia. Using a mixed-methods approach – through the use of a questionnaire, a reflective report and a focus group interview – the results revealed a detailed picture of the continuing professional...

Abstract This exploratory study set out to investigate two principal aims: (1) the general effect of contrastive linguistic input delivered via an online medium on the subsequent written accuracy of subject and object restrictive relative clauses; and (2) the specific effect of administering such instruction in equal proportion on both clause types in light of markedness theory (that purports easier structures will naturally improve when harder ones are afforded more pedagogical attention). To m...

Abstract This corpus-based study investigated the association between noun phrase complexity and L2 writing proficiency based on the 11 noun modifiers in Biber, Gray, and Poonpon's (2011) index of complexity features. A corpus was built based on 100 argumentative papers written by first-year Chinese students, including 50 papers from high-proficiency students (TOEFL writing score > 23) and 50 papers from low-proficiency students (18

Abstract The purpose of this study was to investigate a hyperpolyglot's strategies for fine-tuning his understanding of Chinese vocabulary through mobile apps, online programs, and interactions with a tutor. Videotaped verbal reporting revealed that the subject used strategies for (1) managing vocabulary resources – planning, organizing, and monitoring/evaluating their use, and for (2) processing the information in the resources – finding word equivalents in Chinese for English words, fine-tunin...

Abstract Planning and sequencing lessons in task-based language teaching has been considered a challenge because there is no agreed-upon theoretical framework for sequencing tasks. The SSARC model (stabilize, simplify, automatize, reconstruct, and complexify) of task sequencing allows for predictions about L2 learners’ interlanguage development. However, previous task sequencing studies have reported mixed findings. Therefore, the current study further investigated the effectiveness of sequencin...

While the Circular Economy is widely championed by academics, companies, and politicians, its implementation is still an open issue. Its applications reveal a split between theory and practice. This break makes it difficult to pinpoint how coherent practices are with the original concept and how to understand the purpose of the actions and assess the results’ effectiveness. This is immediate when we consider the complexity of food. This paper aims to provide further insight on the applications a...
