Language Learning Reflection

Language Learning Reflection

Due: 23 September 2013, posted to Moodle

For this assignment, begin by re-reading your language autobiography. With this in mind, think back over the Arabic language learning experiences. Then write a paper (of +/- 3 pages, double-spaced, 12pt) in which you address the following questions:

  • What have you learned about yourself as a learner of language?   To answer the question, reflect on and address the following:  What factors affect your learning? What is your attitude to the language? What is your motivation to learn? What strategies do you use? Be explicit - make comparisons between past and current experiences, and give examples & details from your past and current experiences.
  • What helped you come to these conclusions?
  • How will these insights about yourself as a learner facilitate your learning during this course?
  • In what ways might this knowledge affect your teaching of English in the future?
