Abstract

Language acquisition is by the process of the human interaction and the context developed in a language. For English-as-Foreign-Language (EFL) students, language presentation must give attention to the roles played by sound, gesture and context in the process of genuine communication in order to understanding the meaning of the language. Using video clips from contemporary films and videos is an alternative approach for students to support their acquisition of the learning language in a real world context. In this study, an innovative learning-assisted system is proposed, named the Video Concordancer, which uses a word-stem algorithm to retrieve specific words and their families from a multimedia corpus, as well as subsequently utilize the mutual information approach to analyze word collocations to appropriately present the use of words with several of the video contexts. This multimedia-based aid enables students in Internet-based English learning settings to find engaging, authentic examples of multilingual language in use, giving students the opportunities to strengthen their language skills in a culturally relevant way.
