The analysis of the processes in the speech perception of children with learning disabilities


There is a strong need to investigate speech perception processes in the education of children with learning disabilities. Children with learning disabilities (n = 100) and normal-developing children (n = 100) participated in the GMP testing presented in this study. Results show that the speech perception mechanism is a factor in the development of children with learning disabilities; their acoustic and phonological perception is remarkably weak. The backwardness of the subprocesses related to perception hinder the development of vocabulary and the correct technical functioning of writing and reading. The processes of speech comprehension perform better in their case, which refers to the top-down decoding typical of 2-3-year-old children. The findings suggest that speech perception ability needs early filtering and developing.

Mental lexicon in the mirror of word associations.

The first- and foreign-language acquisition of teenagers


This study investigates the composition of the mental lexicon of secondary school students with the word association method in their first language and in their first foreign language (English). The study analyses the length and word class of activated words, the distribution of semantic categories, and word-retrieving strategies in both languages. Participants of the analysis are tenth- and twelfth-grade students from classes with a regular curriculum and from classes with a higher number of foreign language lessons. The study analyses the results from both linguistic and pedagogical perspectives.

Gender features in the language attitude of students with a teaching major


Relatively little research is done on teacher’s speech both in the national and international literature. Investigations do not discuss that the communication or language attitude of educators are influenced by their gender although it is well-known from sociolinguistic literature for decades that large differences can be found between genders concerning language attitude. Following the overview of literature, this study presents the results of a research project conducted at the University of Debrecen in spring 2013. It has been found that although the group of students with a teaching major is homogeneous in many senses, a few number of striking differences can be found between men and women in terms of gender expectations and stereotypes.

The role of teacher’s instructions in the correction of students’ texts – in the mirror of a survey 


The development of text production is a key task not only for first-language education, but also for other content areas. In spite of this, in many cases research investigates the deficiencies of students’ text production skills and also the problems with teachers’ text correction practices of in this context. This study investigates the role of teacher’s instructions in text production – based on the results of a questionnaire. The first section with an overview of the theoretical bases deals with relevant parts of the National curriculum related to the development of text production and the tasks of composition teaching. It briefly compares the product- and process-oriented perspectives of composition teaching based on the cognitive approach of the writing process. The closing section analyses experienced and novice teachers’ text correction practices in the light of a questionnaire survey.

The development of intercultural competence in first-language classes


People travel more and more often today and as a result, they more often meet people of other nationalities in their country and abroad as well. In many schools in Hungary, pupils with Hungarian as their mother tongue learn together with pupils of other nationalities. There is an increasing need from society for intercultural communication skills. The topic of this paper is to discover the possibilities of developing intercultural communication competence at school and in particular in the Hungarian language classes. The first section of the paper provides an interpretation for multicultural and intercultural education as well as for other related notions. It also deals with the related concepts in the Hungarian and Finnish national curricula. Finally, the paper recommends exercises built on drama pedagogy and cross curricular activities, which efficiently develop intercultural communication and which can be incorporated into Hungarian as a first language lessons.
