Error Feedback: Skill Acquisition Theory As noted in the previous post on theory in error feedback, the research on expertise and ACT-R Theory suggest that learning a language is similar to learning other activities like chess, music, and math. In this post, we'll look at Skill Acquisition Theory (SAT), which is based upon the work in ACT-R. Robert DeKeyser (2007) has a good overview of Skill Acquisition Theory.

Forget the Resolutions, Create a Vision Board that Works With the holiday buzz quietly behind us, are you still forging ahead with the new goals you wanted to implement into 2013, or, like most people, are you already noticing a backslide? It’s the middle of January, and studies show that 80% of our resolutions are now as out of our thoughts as the boxed up Christmas decorations. One of the reasons that resolutions are often sidetracked is that they cause us to focus on what we need to give up, instead of asking for more of what we want. We say toss out those resolutions, and join us in creating a Vision Board for 2013. You have no doubt heard of Vision Boards by now – many celebrities and self-growth experts from Oprah to Maria Shriver advocate their use, and there are numerous books and websites on the subject. Our goal is to encourage you to set aside the time to create one, now – if you have not already in the new year.
