Language Learning Strategies for ESL Students - Links
I had the opportunity to chair the annual Intermountain TESOL Conference this past weekend in St. George, Utah where attendees were privileged to hear plenary addresses from two world-renowned experts in language learning strategies for ESL students: Dr. Andrew Cohen and Dr. Anna Chamot. Dr. Cohen discussed the development of a website for helping students learn to develop grammar strategies while learning Spanish. Dr. Chamot discussed how to help K-12 students become good language learners by using language learning strategies. I want to share a couple of links that were provided in their presentations.
- Dr. Cohen's grammar strategies website: dev-carla.umn.edu/strategies/sp_grammar/.
- Dr. Cohen's personal website, which contains other helpful links: www.tc.umn.edu/~adcohen/.
- Dr. Chamot's Cognitive Academic Language Learning Approach (CALLA): www.calla.ws. For a list of strategies developed by Chamot, see http://www.calla.ws/strategies/index.html.
- Links to Cohen's and Chamot's handouts, as well as other presenters' handouts, will be available at www.itesol.org shortly.
