Family Language Learning

As I mentioned a few days ago, I received some wonderful resources on the topic of language learning from Vickie LaClare and Linda Woods, who are leaders in charge of language learning for the overseas staff of Campus Crusade for Christ.

If you look to the right side of this page, below the section titled “Categories,” you will see a new blue box titled “Downloads.” Right now there are 3 resources posted there for you.

-The first is a 61 page guide to children’s language learning that is full of information on goals, challenges, methods, activities, games, and further resources.

-The second resource listed is a questionnaire to help you assess where you are in the language learning process. It is designed to help you discover your individual challenge areas in order that you can work towards overcoming them.

-The third resource is titled “Becoming a Full Participant” and is a resource that discusses several levels of participation within a speech community and  has several questionnaires to help you assess where you are as far as fully participating in the speech community in which you live. It also provides a long list of helpful suggestions for language learners as far as how to become more active participants within our communities.

Also, here is a site that Vickie and Linda suggested as another great place to find language resources. You may need to register to be able to use this site, but it has a number of other valuable language learning resources.

    Thanks for the resources! I printed out the second two. Lately, I’ve been feeling so STUPID with learning the language. It was helpful to take the tests and to realize that it’s more of a motivation problem than a brain problem! I was able to brainstorm some ways to help this!!

    Hey Jami! I am glad that the questionnaires were helpful for you too! I’ll be praying for good, motivating language learning opportunities for you!

    This design is incredible! You most certainly know how to keep a reader entertained.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog
    (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job. I really enjoyed what you had to say,
    and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
