Foreign Languages & The Literary in the Everyday
The FLLITE Project takes the creative moments found in everyday language use in authentic texts such as blogs, internet memes, YouTube videos, and slam poetry, as the basis for lessons in second language literacy. By emphasizing language play as central to communication, teacher-authored FLLITE lessons aim to develop language awareness as well as communicative abilities through the integration of speaking, reading, listening, and writing tasks.
