From an Individual to an Intersubjective Perspective: Reflections for Foreign Language Acquisition

Giuseppe Maugeri


This study will present the results of neurobiological research, in the light of which an intersubjective vision of language learning takes shape. In the field of language teaching, synchronization of the right hemisphere between two brains in communication helps to shift the focus from an individual or subjective vision of learning onto an interpersonal and dynamic one. Therefore, after highlighting the neurobiological and interpersonal mechanisms inside communication in the first part of the article, an analysis of the edu-linguistic repercussions will follow, so that selected teaching strategies can activate more effective ways of working for language acquisition.
