Teachers ensure that… te reo Māori is used as much as possible in the learning environment interactive, learner-centred tasks are central to the programme; language structures are introduced and practised in meaningful contexts non-verbal aspects of communication are included in the programme students develop a range of different language learning strategies; students’ language learning strategies include strategies for engaging with unfamiliar language language is presented in a way that encourages students to look for patterns and rules
Teachers encourage… speak as well as listen, and initiate communication as well as respond, focusing sometimes on fluency and sometimes on both fluency and accuracy work together in pairs and groups to share information and solve real-life or simulated problems engage with topics that are of genuine interest to them communicate using appropriate body language, tone of voice, and intonation and discuss the parallel features in written communication try out different language learning strategies, identifying those that are most useful for them use different strategies to work out the meanings of new words (for example, by considering the context or by using knowledge of the morphology of Māori words) search for patterns and rules in the language they encounter
Principles of 2LL Instructed Second Language Acquisition: Case Studies (Ministry of Education, 2006) Ten principles of effective language teaching Four of which emphasise: – Formulaic Expressions – Input – Output – Interaction
Principles of 2LL 1.Instruction needs to ensure that learners develop both a rich repertoire of formulaic expressions and a rule-based competence. 2.Instruction needs to ensure that learners focus predominantly on meaning. 3.Instruction needs to ensure that learners also focus on form. 4.Instruction needs to be predominantly directed at developing implicit knowledge of the target language while not neglecting explicit knowledge. 5.Instruction needs to take into account the learner’s “built-in syllabus”. 6.Successful instructed language learning requires extensive target language input. 7.Successful instructed language learning also requires opportunities for output. 8.The opportunity to interact in the target language is central to developing proficiency. 9.Instruction needs to take account of individual differences in learners. 10.In assessing learners’ target language proficiency it is important to examine free as well as controlled production.
