Understanding Neuroscience to Redefine Second Language Learning (PP149), Paper
Studies involving hi-tech brain imaging technologies called functional magnetic resonance imaging (FMRI), have revealed some intriguing insights into how to best accomplish the goals of teaching a second language. This paper explores those teaching practices which, when employed in classrooms, make the learning environment more brain compatible and allow students to better maximize their learning potential. The presentation ends with a variety of activities that will guide teachers to help students build their brain potential.
