Academic Language

4 April 2015
Examines negative effects on college students’ learning & strategies for overcoming these effects.

Academic Language, the distinct type of English used in classroom settings, has been fairly well-established as a variable that increases the learning difficulties of language minority students (Solomon & Rhodes, 1995). Several factors have been said to be associated with causing this interference with learning including the vocabulary, syntax, structure, content and cognitive demands of academic language (Solomon & Rhodes, 1995). While academic language poses difficulties for students at all levels of learning (elementary, secondary, college), the review of literature presented here specifically explores studies that have focused on dealing, at the college level, with the problems posed by academic language.
