A dynamic view of strategies involved in second language acquisition



Soyul and Teacher Yvette: Adventures in Preschool Second Language Acquisition is a DVD/CD-ROM set, showcasing one dual language learner across fourteen months of preschool. An avenue for observation, it offers a dynamic view of the stages and strategies involved in second language acquisition. The featured video presents a singular case study of one child over time, capturing the trajectory of her language development.
Soyul and Teacher Yvette: Adventures in Preschool Second Language Acquisition consists of three twenty-minute videos and a facilitator’s guide (in English and Spanish) and expressly supports:
  • Directors of early childhood education centers,
  • Instructors at colleges and universities,
  • Monolingual and bilingual teachers,
  • Parents and families.

Each video serves as a springboard for flexible, mobile professional development:
  • Video One documents Soyul, Teacher Yvette, and the four stages of preschool second language acquisition;
  • Video Two zeroes in on the characteristics of each stage with commentary on Soyul’s language abilities;
  • Video Three focuses on the teaching strategies appropriate to Soyul at each of the four stages and the benefits of supporting the first language and culture of the dual language learner.
