TuneTranscriber. Ralentir la lecture d’un passage. Article mis à jour le 29 septembre 2014 par Fidel Navamuel TuneTranscriber est un outil en ligne qui permet très facilement de jouer avec des fichiers audio. Un outil qui privilégie la simplicité mais qui peut transformer votre ordinateur en véritable laboratoire de langues ou encore en un répétiteur infatigable pour apprendre la musique. TuneTranscriber propose un lecteur de fichiers audio qui offre entre autres options de ralentir la lecture d’un son ou d’une vidéo. Avec toute ces options, TuneTranscriber ne révolutionne pas le genre mais réussit cependant à proposer un service souple et simple qui trouvera de nombreux terrains d’application en classe. Le plus évident intéressera sans doute les enseignants et élèves en langues. Pas besoin de s’inscrire pour utiliser TuneTranscriber, la contre partie c’est que l’outil ne garde rien en mémoire d’une session à l’autre. Lien: TuneTranscriber

Six things I tried out this year which truly enhanced my teaching Here are six things that I have tried out this year which significantly enhanced my teaching and two which, whilst being much less successful, provided me with valuable insight in my students’ cognition and affect. 1. Six things that worked 1.1Teaching more verbs The textbooks and the wordlists that one finds in published instructional materials and on language learning websites traditionally tend to mainly focus on nouns, occasionally throwing the odd adjective here and there. Without verbs the communicative power that we provide our students with is seriously limited. Moreover, by widening the range of verbs we also provide a larger number of cognitive ‘hooks’ for the target nouns, contextual cues that will facilitate future recall. Another benefit of teaching more verbs is that the more our students use them the more they are likely to deploy adverbs – a highly under-taught word class. 1.2 Much more listening practice and more listening-for-modelling activities 3.Tips Like this:

Apprendre/désapprendre. Sur la ligne de crête des apprentissages numériques Dossier13/12/2013 Pour qui s’intéresse, comme le fait le Digital Society Forum, aux relations entre les technologies et nos sociétés, la question de l’apprentissage est un vrai cas d’école. Dans ce domaine comme dans tant d’autres, il suffit de chercher à mesurer l’effet des technologies sur les performances scolaires pour ne rien trouver. En elles-mêmes, les Technologies de l'Information et de la Communication pour l'Enseignement (TICE) ne sont causes de rien, ne rendent pas les enseignants plus pédagogues, les enseignés plus performants ou la société plus savante. Numérisation du tableau blanc, du cartable, du manuel scolaire, des exercices, de la relation avec l’enseignant ou des échanges entre apprenants, il ne suffit pas de substituer, pièce par pièce, un dispositif numérique à un outillage analogique pour que, comme par magie, les apprentissages s’améliorent, les inégalités devant l’éducation s’évaporent ou que les capacités créatives se développent.

10 of the best words in the world (that don't translate into English) One of the many great things about languages worldwide is the sizeable number of words for which there is no real English translation. Often they tell us about concepts and ideas that we are missing out on in the anglophone world. As the northern hemisphere heads abroad in the coming holiday season, here are a few to be looking out for: SPAIN: sobremesa You may have witnessed the ritual, knowingly or not, while on the hunt for a coffee or a cold beer towards the end of another long Spanish afternoon. Sitting clumped around tables inside restaurants or spilling out on to their terrazas, are friends, families and colleagues, preserved in the post-prandial moment like replete insects in amber. Lunch – and it is more usually lunch than dinner – will long since have yielded to the important act of the sobremesa, that languid time when food gives way to hours of talking, drinking and joking. Ask Mariano Rajoy. PORTUGAL: esperto/esperta If you understand it, you probably are. ITALY: bella figura

L'écriture inclusive, que les antiféministes adorent détester "Souiller la langue française avec ce genre d'inepties pour incultes ne sauvera pas les femmes du harcèlement de rue ou de l'excision !" "Les poèmes de Musset et de Hugo auraient été be·lles·aux écrits comme ça... Bande d'abrutis". Relayé mardi 15 août sur les réseaux sociaux, l'article des Echos intitulé "L'écriture inclusive : et si on s'y mettait tou·te·s ?" Cette méthode d'écriture, promue par de nombreux militant·e·s féministes, vise à adopter une grammaire et une typographie qui rendent les femmes plus visibles dans notre langue. Qu'est-ce que l'écriture inclusive ? L'écriture inclusive est une technique d'écriture qui englobe des règles de grammaire et de syntaxe permettant d'assurer une représentation plus égalitaire des femmes et des hommes dans la langue française. La règle grammaticale selon laquelle le masculin l'emporte sur le féminin est également dans le viseur des partisans de l'écriture inclusive. Concrètement, comment l'utilise-t-on ? L'emploi de mots épicènes.

Games for Learning English, Vocabulary, Grammar Games, Activities, ESL In the beginning was the word, and the word was embodied If you don’t speak Japanese but would like, momentarily, to feel like a linguistic genius, take a look at the following words. Try to guess their meaning from the two available options: 1. nurunuru (a) dry or (b) slimy?2. pikapika (a) bright or (b) dark?3. wakuwaku (a) excited or (b) bored?4. iraira (a) happy or (b) angry? The answers are: 1(b); 2(a); 3(a); 4(b); 5(b); 6(a); 7(a); 8(b); 9(b) 10(a). If you think this exercise is futile, you’re in tune with traditional linguistic thinking. Yet many world languages contain a separate set of words that defies this principle. How and why do ideophones do this? Their results pose a profound challenge to the foundations of Saussurean linguistics. This understanding of language as an embodied process can illuminate the marvel of language acquisition during infancy. Updates on everything new at Aeon. How should we define an ideophone? Ideophones are more prevalent in some languages than others. That observation is significant in itself.
