English as a Lingua Franca and the multilingual classroom
THANK YOU!
Laura Patsko elfpron.wordpress.com @ELF_pron
How many different L1s?
likely areas of difficulty/ease?
how much overlap between the various L1s?
What do you/they know about these L1 backgrounds?
Similar language families?
how much relevant content in the course materials?
A worked example:
French, Italian, Turkish & Japanese
select sentences (1 per student)
print tables for students to complete (1 row per student, minus 1)
type the sentences out and print 2 copies
cut one copy into separate sentences to give to the students
explain the purpose and what will happen next
let students prepare
give them an example
each student reads his/her sentence twice
the other students write what they hear
don't intervene or correct them
compare your notes with your predicted syllabus content
take your own notes
compare what each student wrote for student X, student Y, etc.
prepare brief feedback notes for each student (on their productive AND receptive performance)
refine your syllabus
