Brain Pathways in Second Language
G1: Classroom setting
G2: Immersion setting

ERPs measured

Results: Pathways used in immersion setting were similar to first language
: Recent (2-12 months)
: Chronic (2+ years)

Lille test- verbal and nonverbal communication

PACE situation

Findings: Those who had brain injury for a longer period of time performed better on communication assessments.

Language is so important to students.
Infant Learning
Phase 1
: Teaching abstract words to infants
-Paired abstract word with abstract shape (
-Word was considered learned once paired with a new shape and the infants stared longer
Phase 2
: Good and Bad Cues
-Used words from Phase 1
-Placed in good cue or poor cue
Good Cue
: The army is trying a new bean gaffe hold next week

Poor Cue
: The army is trying a new fang gaffe tine next week
After presenting cue, used Switch Test again to see how well infants learned abstract words

-Good Cues facilitated infant learning
-Poor Cues didn't hurt learning
So What?
I don't know who discovered water, but I can promise you it wasn't a fish.
Work Smart
and Don't Give Up!
Use of Captions in Foreign Language
Students would not look as long at captions during short movie that had familiar content
Russian & Spanish vs. Arabic
Chinese & Familiarity
