Topic: English learning and writing via science
Speaker: LiJune-Ming, Ph.D. Department of Chemistry, University of South Florida
Language learning is on the one hand very intuitive process wherein it takes children only a few years to achieve, while on the other hand it takes many more years to mater wherein many cannot compose an article even into their adult years.While the intuitive language learning in children register in the “language area” of the brain, putting together a scientific report requires more organization in different areas of the brain and other supporting skills, including logical, analytical, and rational thinking, memory retrieval, creativity and innovation, word usage, proper construction of sentences, and maintaining a good flow of the entire report, and a strong background in the selected discipline of the report.Thus, there is no single panacea for improving English learning and writing in one shot without all the other supporting skills.In this presentation, some guidelines will be discussed to lay a foundation for students to gain better ideas about “English learning and writing” with repeated and consistent practices, like in all “kungfu practices”.
