Answer:

Psychology is the study of human behavior composed of several major schools of thought or psychological ‘theories’ that have influenced the development of psychology: - Structuralism: Elements of the mind broken down into simplest components; introspection; - Functionalism: Functions and adaptations of the mind - Gestalt: Examines the whole experience of mind and behavior; whole > sum of parts - Behaviorism: Behavior is influenced by external factors rather than internal factors; conditioning; observable behavior - Psychoanalysis: Behavior is influenced by our unconscious mind; id, ego, superego - Humanistic: Focuses on individual free will, personal growth, and self-actualization - Cognitive: How internal/mental processes including thinking, perceiving, reasoning, and attention, memory, language use, and executive functioning affect behavior Most psychologists today have a more eclectic approach to psychology by integrating several schools of thought for the most complete outlook. The study of Psychology is important not only for the treatment of mental health issues, but also for better understanding yourself and others, learning and practicing the scientific method, developing critical thinking skills, and can complement other areas of study or even help you in your future career. Psychology can be found almost everywhere, but some examples of specific careers that may use Psychology include business, hospitality, sports, forensics, child development, media, and more!

Question:

What are some strategies for teaching language appropriacy to ESL/EFL students?

Answer:

Appropriacy is a communicative approach that refers to the suitability of language within context. It depends on a mix of three factors: - Person (who you are talking to/your relationship with them) - Situation (the situation you find yourself in; environment/physical location) - Purpose (why you are talking) The difficulty with appropriacy is that so much of it is culturally specific. Through direct translation or speaking similarly to their first language/native tongue, ESL/EFL speakers can sometimes sound inappropriate or unintentionally rude in English. Repetition, exposure, and experience over time are necessary for appropriacy; however, there are methods that can be used to help accelerate the process: - Practice transformations (polite/formal vs casual) - Listening and insinuating (students listen and decide what type of relationship exists between the speakers) - Scripts with inappropriate language (students remove and replace inappropriate language from scripts) - Spoken language (role playing) - Demonstrative charts and handouts
