Perspectives on Participation and Attitudes in the Foreign Language Classroom
PhD Student, Temple University
Ms. Mattson-Prieto presents some results of her research on how students learn a foreign language. She begins by describing how languages are taught today and asking members of the audience to reflect on their own experiences as language learners. She then focuses on collaborative learning and motivation for language students. Ms. Mattson-Prieto is especially interested in motivation, which she describes as “dynamic, ever-changing, and not static.” She also shares practical applications to increase motivation.
