Course Objectives Various domains of the English language (phonological, lexical, grammatical, pragmatic/discourse) in relation to language learning and teaching. An overview of research into second/foreign language learning and applications to teaching and learning additional languages.
Course Content The course aims to increase awareness of issues relevant to language teaching which are currently in debate amongst second language acquisition researchers, applied linguists and practitioners in the field of ELT. In some cases, the topics have taken the form of re-conceptualisations of existing ideas whereas others have occurred as a result of developments in our understanding of how both the wider educational environments and the classroom learning contexts in which ELT occurs can be conceptualised. In addition, because of the increasing rate of change in language teaching ideas, how innovation is approached in language teaching methodology has become an increasingly important issue. 'Critical theory' has also begun to exert a strong influence on the landscape of ELT methodology in recent years. This course therefore explores the bases of these developments, examines the procedures by which underlying concepts have been translated into practice, and discusses some of the emergent professional issues.
Learning Outcomes (LO) The students who attended the course and were successful at the end of semester will acquire the followings; LO1 - developing an awareness of the properties of language in use; how language is embedded and inseparable from culture and context and how language changes LO2- identifying areas of potential difficulty for second language learners of English LO3 - demonstrating an understanding of the variety of language backgrounds that learners may come from (multilingual/monolingual; standard/non-standard) and how learners backgrounds influence learning English LO4 - being able to explain the historical development of research into second language learning and some primary theoretical orientations
