This blog was created as a space to generate analysis and critical reflection on the theoretical and practical proposals of psychology and linguistics applied to language teaching.
The purpose of this blog is to provide language teachers and students the information needed in the area of linguistics and psychology in order to be applied in their teaching critically and objectively.
When teaching a second language, we as teachers should take into account individual differences and how those differences might influence the way our students learn and influence on their profiency achievement and success in second language learning. Individual differences such as the language strategies that students use in order to learn the target language as well as their learning style should be considered by the teacher.
Here we have a set of videos by Dianna Murphy, Associate Director of the University of Wisconsin-Madison Language Institute where she presents someinformation related to these issues.
