Title : Linguistic CMC: A study of language change in American universities’ Facebook
Type : Paper (25 minutes)
Category : Individual session
Abstract :

Due to the rapid development of social networks, their users have many opportunities to communicate through technologies with different people regardless of where they are, what they do, which level they possess, even some culture they belong to. Numerous benefits that social networks bring out are not only worldwide connection through the Internet but also a favourable communicative channel. Especially, social networks become an effective tool for language learners to actively practise the language skills at any time as long as it is suitable to their expectations (to read, to write, to listen, or even to speak with their microphone) and their likes (related to favourite topics). From the viewpoint of language teachers, social networks are an ideal source for introducing to their students. Besides, they are a fruitful channel to update cultural knowledge and practical language trends in online communication. It is also helpful for teachers to supervise some language progress of their students. This paper will report on English use in American universities’ Facebook pages to point out several notices which language teachers and learners should consider in language teaching and learning. This is a preliminary finding for further research towards developing a new language teaching-learning method under the influence of technological expansion.
