Social emotional factorsself esteem motivation anxiety level attitudes of the learner and cognitive factorsc0gnitive style learning styles learning strategies Demonstrate an understanding of cognitive factors such as age language acquisition processes stages of development and learning styles Age A kind of instruction varies greatly according to the age of the learner and although it has been theorized that children have an easier time learning a second language than adults there is little to no evidence that indicates this theory is true Language Acquisition processes In order to begin the language learning process one must distinguish how much prior experience the student has in the second language and the knowledge must be properly assessed in order to function as afoundation for the student to build their uency of the second language Teachers must also have a complete record of the students prior school success in order to made future informed instructional decisions It is also important to inquire about the students likes and dislikes in order to help bridge a teacher student or intercultural gap Learning style once a learning style is identified in a student the teacher can use the information to plan and to modify certain aspects of courses and assignments Identify the characteristics of the theory of common underlying proficiency This theory is one of Cumins s theories of bilingualism and cognition Cummins asserts that cognition and language fundamentals once learned in the primary language form a basis for subsequent learning in any language This Common underlying proficiency is the belief that second language and the primary language have a shared foundation and that competence in the primary language provides the basis for competence in the second language Identify the differences between BICS and CALP Basic Interpersonal Communication Skills BICS AKA everyday conversational language developed NATURALLY by all L2 speakers Includes
