Course Content (Syllabus)
2nd session (Acquisition of German as a Third Language, Instructor: Stamatia Michalopoulou): In this seminar we will discuss the theoretical and experimental approaches on third language (L3) acquisition. A dominant topic of discussion in this scientific field is the linguistic transfer of syntactic structures and functional categories in the interlanguage of non-native speakers as well as the role played in this process by the various (linguistic and individual) factors affecting the crosslinguistic transfer. More specifically we will elaborate on their impact on the acquisition of German as a L3, by native speakers of Greek, who have already acquired English as a second language. Finally, we will attempt to demonstrate the research challenges, combined with the methodological issues, theoretical and experimental, emerging in the study of the third language acquisition. 4th session (Functional-pragmatic Discourse Analysis of classroom communication, Faculty Instructor: Evangelia Karagiannidou): This course is designed to be partly theoretical and partly practical. In its theoretical part students will be acquainted with the Theory of Functional Pragmatic of Ehlich and Rehbein. Furthermore, students will be expected to transcribe and analyze lessons of German as a foreign language and to produce a final research paper.
