Cognitive Psychology Models and Approaches to Develop Language Skills

Imad Tahini, Тomokazu Nakayama, Vitaly Dibrova, and Аlex Dadykin
Abstract—There is a need to raise the quality of communication between people that are speaking different languages to a higher level in the modern world. This requires finding new ways to improve language learning and teaching. The basis of the conducted researches is made by cognitive psychology models. The last developments are directed to the association of two new methods, simultaneous development of language skills and grammatical competence of one activity. The methods are the Visual-Auditory Shadowing (VAS) method and the Structural-Visual Method (SVM). The Structural-Visual Method is a new inductive language learning methodology, based on mapping of the structure of linguistic knowledge in a graphic form using color to encode the most common patterns. The Visual-Auditory Shadowing method is also an inductive language learning methodology, which facilitates learning of phonological knowledge (pronunciation) and ideographical knowledge (spelling). Each of these methods can be improved through the use of computer systems and the combined use of both will lead to a synergistic effect in the learning process. The study provides a conceptual solution which requires experimental verification and further joint research.

Index Terms—Learning management system, model of the psyche, structural-visual method, visual Model, visual-auditory shadowing method.
