The fifth part is the research to explore whether the experimental methodology has a significant effect on improving the student's reading competence and English language proficiency. The author draws the conclusion from the data analysis by performing with SPSS 12.0 in the last part.
This article analyses the requirement of our society for English teaching in higher education and concludes that English teaching should aim not only at cultivating the students' language ability but also developing their all-round quality and modeling their personality.
The results demonstrate that this pedagogy is evidently superior to traditional teaching, not only in students’vocabulary acquisition, but also in their knowledge of English culture and command of integrated language ability.
Now "New curriculum for Senior English Teaching" requests that we should not only develop students' ability of language use, but also improve students' ability of thinking and expressing in English, ie. to enhance comprehensive language ability.
In China, with the advocacy by the new National English Curriculum Standards(Experimental draft)(2001) that task-based approach should be exercised in ELT classroom, TBI has been conducted and practised in English teaching classroom in basic education and it has been proved to be one of the most effective methods to help the young school students to improve their language ability and fulfill the objectives of English teaching and learning.
This paper analyzes the determinants of language abilities of migrant workers and the impact of language proficiency on their earnings position.
This paper uses the data on males and females from the 1989 Legalized Population Survey (LPS), a sample of aliens granted amnesty under 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act, to analyse English language proficiency and earnings.
We use a model of English language proficiency that is based on economic incentives, exposure and efficiency variables that measure the costs and benefits of aquiring English language skills.
In contrast, this paper is concerned with the relationships among family members in the determinants of destination language proficiency among immigrants.
A model of immigrant language proficiency is augmented to include dynamics among family members.
Results indicate that cultural change as measured by this behavior (student verbal assertiveness with the teacher) is significantly correlated at a moderate level with English language ability but not course grades.
When we consider the direction - either upward or downward - of occupational change, we find that English language ability and the characteristics of the occupation, itself, are strongly correlated with mobility before legalization.
The data we present have considerable relevance for clinical investigation given the importance of temporal acuity in the perception of speech and, thus, in the maturation of language ability.
Physician language ability and cultural competence
OBJECTIVE: We studied physician-patient dyads to determine how physician self-rated Spanish-language ability and cultural competence affect Spanish-speaking patients' reports of interpersonal processes of care.
Computational linguistics and the study of linguistic performance
However, performance on the Seashore Test for Musical Ability correlated highly with linguistic performance.
Cognitive precedence with respect to corresponding linguistic ability was observed in only one of the experiments, where linguistic performance was unsually low due to phonological interference between the lexical items used.
Rather, we argue incremental probabilistic parsing models are, in general, extremely well suited to explaining this dual nature-generally good and occasionally pathological-of human linguistic performance.
At the same time linguistic performance moves from error prone to native speaker like performance.
