Learning strategies or learner strategies has recently become the research interest of many scholars and has been considered the new decisive factor in the learning process. In the article, the author has summarized and presented some theories concerning learning strategies or learner strategies and later has proposed her own ideas on the importance of and ways to introduce the strategies to the learners in an EFL context.
This paper uses an unsupervised model of grounded language acquisition to study the role that social cues play in language acquisition. The input to the model consists of (orthographically transcribed) child-directed utterances accompanied by the set of objects present in the non-linguistic context. Each object is annotated by social cues, indicating e.g., whether the caregiver is looking at or touching the object.
This paper describes a Web-based English-Chinese concordance system, TotalRecall, developed to promote translation reuse and encourage authentic and idiomatic use in second language writing. We exploited and structured existing highquality translations from the bilingual Sinorama Magazine to build the concordance of authentic text and translation. Novel approaches were taken to provide high-precision bilingual alignment on the sentence, phrase and word levels. A browser-based user interface (UI) is also developed for ease of access over the Internet.
For centuries, the deep connection between languages has brought about major discoveries about human communication. In this paper we investigate how this powerful source of information can be exploited for unsupervised language learning. In particular, we study the task of morphological segmentation of multiple languages. We present a nonparametric Bayesian model that jointly induces morpheme segmentations of each language under consideration and at the same time identiﬁes cross-lingual morpheme patterns, or abstract morphemes. ...
Japanese case markers, which indicate the grammatical relation of the complement NP to the predicate, often pose challenges to the generation of Japanese text, be it done by a foreign language learner, or by a machine translation (MT) system. In this paper, we describe the task of predicting Japanese case markers and propose machine learning methods for solving it in two settings: (i) monolingual, when given information only from the Japanese sentence; and (ii) bilingual, when also given information from a corresponding English source sentence in an MT context. ...
This article explores the concept of online learning and analyses responses from students in several online language courses in a university of Vietnam to see how ready the learners are for this new learning mode in terms of learning styles and whether or not students have any difficulties when switching to the new learning style.

Many linguists consider vocabulary development to be more important than learning grammar, asserting that lexical items carry more meaning than grammatical structures and that one can survive in the target language community with a dictionary but not with a grammar book. They view comprehension as directly dependent on the ability to recognize the meaning of key words in a sentence.
