Primary Instructor:

This introductory class aims at providing students with a mix of theory and practice in the teaching of languages. Students will be introduced both to the various language teaching methodologies, and to the theories behind these methods, with an overview of the theories of second language acquisition research, (particularly those pertaining to instructed second language learning) offering an empirical base. In addition to this historical and research background to language teaching, students will also learn the foundations of how to teach the various skill areas such as writing, reading, pronunciation, speaking and listening at various levels and to differing populations of learners. Practice teaching opportunities in class will provide opportunities for students in pairs and groups to try out what they are learning. Students will be required to complete a portfolio containing their own lesson plans, reflections on their practice teaching and reflections on observed language classes.
