Task-based language learning for Ojibwe: A case study of two intermediate adult language learners

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter reports on a yearlong project using newly created conversation language archives, and how these are being productively used to promote adult students’ oral proficiency in Ojibwe, a Native American language spoken in the upper-Midwest of the United States and in Canada. Data reveal that conversational archives of fluent native speakers provide an authentic conversational context for the study, use and practice of challenging verb transitive animate (VTA) linguistic forms, enabling adult learners to move from beginning to advanced speaker status.
