EUROCALL, 2006 Example of exchange
EUROCALL, 2006 From chat to linguistics Hallo K!…………………..Ich möchte Education (can't find the German word!) an der Universität studieren, so jetzt bin ich an den Geschichten über es in den Nachrichten interessiert - unglucklicherweise gibt es viele Änderungen jetzt, also muß ich neue Sachen jeden Tag erlernen!Aber wirklich bin ich an viele Sachen interessiert - ich kann nicht für langes konzentrieren! Hallo L!……..An welcher Universität möchtest Du studieren? Und übrigens, wenn Du sagen willst, daß Du "education" (in Sinne: Lehrerin zu werden) studiern willst, auf Deutsch sagt man "Lehramt", also Du kannst sagen: "Ich möchte Mathematik und Chemie auf Lehramt studieren." Das heißt du willst danach Mathematik und Chemie in einer Schule unterrichten. Wenn du aber "education" im Sinne von Techniken der Lehre (also wie, auf welche Art und Weise usw), dann ist es besser "Pädagogik" zu sagen. "Ich möchte Pädagogik studieren".

EUROCALL, 2006 Roles and images Peers on-line We tend to prefer small groups than large We can normally function better with informal rather than formal situations We would usually try and avoid confrontational and awkward situations Especially when you are younger, we tend to think we are alone in feeling like this and everyone else is more confident and skilful! (Sandra Cornbleet, Ronald Carter) Activity Context Purpose Receivers Topic Oral presentation Classroom Learning teacher/class Any (face-to-face) Chat/discussion on line Learning (?) near peers Any Example Russian chara-dixie.doc
