Multimedia Activities for Teachers of
Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Persian, and Spanish

The activities in this section provide video recordings of 10 language learners doing communication tasks -- two learners each in Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Persian and Spanish. Teachers are guided in analyzing video clips of learner language through multimedia interactive activities, and asked to consider the implications of their analysis for their own pedagogy. These multimedia activities are designed to provide language teachers with a better understanding of the way learner language develops. This understanding will help them adjust their teaching to maximize student achievement. This approach, first used for teachers of English in Tarone & Swierzbin (2009), is extended here to support teachers of five languages: Mandarin Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Persian (Farsi), and Spanish.
