Home » Items » Language Awareness: Thinking about Language
World language study at the high school level is nearly always about learning a particular language and infrequently about learning how language plays a role in our lives. To complement the usual focus on learning one language, students of the Leysin American School created a set of exercises designed to increase awareness about language in general, exploring by way of simple activities questions like: Can a language make us sexist?
The activities may be most appropriate for an international school setting in which students generally speak a number of different languages. In the second half of the book, the students reviewed online sites for language learning, based on their own experience.
