Teaching and Learning Korean as a Foreign Language

Author: Andrew Byon, Danielle Pyun
Publisher: Foreign Language Publications (2012)
Binding: Paperback, pages
Summary:
Korean as a Foreign Language (KFL) in U.S. college settings began on a small scale. Despite experiencing huge growth in recent years, KFL pedagogy is still in its beginning stages. KFL research monographs and/or edited volumes are relatively few, as compared to mainstream second/foreign language (L2) field. The NEALRC published this volume as a timely addition to the growing KFL field. This volume, edited by Andrew Byon and Danielle Pyun, contains eleven original studies that explore various pedagogical issues in KFL . This book aims to facilitate the dialogue between the existing instructional L2 acquisition theories and their applicability/practicality when implemented in actual KFL classroom settings. This book will be of particular interest to graduate students, language teachers, curriculum developers, and researchers in the fields of KFL as well as applied linguistics.

Author: Mary S. Erbaugh
Publisher: Ohio State Univ Foreign Language
Binding: Paperback, 285pages
Summary:
Mary S. Erbaugh has compiled this volume to examine the so-called "ideographic myth" from a variety of perspectives. Through this multidisciplinary collection of articles, we learn how the myth has come about, what sort of theory and empirical evidence have been generated to refute it, and how this myth has stubbornly persisted to hamper progress in a number of scholarly areas. But perhaps most importantly, this volume presents in a detailed manner how different academic disciplines go about analyzing historical and empirical data in order to arrive at new knowledge.
