At UCLA, I soon began teaching the afternoon Movie Elective, a popular class which meets four hours per week. As the Movie Elective instructor at UCLA and lecturer at Caltech, I realized a desire to create quality teaching material for using movies interactively in the ESL classroom.

7all. Introduction_to_projectwork.pdf. Foreign Language Education in the 21st Century. Posted by Jürgen Kurtz, Justus Liebig University (JLU) Giessen, Germany In a recent paper published in the Cambridge Handbook of Second Language Acquisition (Herschensohn & Young-Scholten 2013), Florence Myles looks at “the major theoretical families that currently exist in SLA research” (2013: 46).

Foreign Language Education in the 21st Century

Comparing the most influential linguistic, cognitive, and sociocultural frameworks and approaches to second language acquisition, she identifies a number of divergent trends and “a plethora of different and seemingly conflicting claims” (2013: 46), arguing that due to the complexity of language and language learning “a single SLA theory is currently beyond our reach” (2013: 70).

My Best of series. I’ve separated my “The Best…” lists here by topics.

My Best of series

A number of the lists, though, can fit into multiple categories, so it still might be useful to scan all of them. The Websites Of The Year page on this blog, on the other hand, has these lists in the chronological order in which they’ve been written. Please note that I continually update and revise all of the lists. The best way to search is using “Control + F” on your keyboard.

The Best Sites For Learning About The World’s Different Cultures. I’ve compiled several “The Best…” lists that sites where you can learn about the geography, data, languages, and holidays of different countries around the world. Those resources are important, but I think it’s like learning the words, but not the music, of a song. So I thought I’d develop a separate list just focused on helping students learn about the cultures of different countries, and would love to hear additional suggestions. You might also be interested in The Best Travel Photographs Of The Year. Here are my choices for The Best Sites For Learning About The World’s Different Cultures (and are accessible to English Language Learners): Culture Crossing is a unique resource for information about different countries.
