Course Content (Syllabus)
This course will be linked to Ling 3-225 as most of the methods that will be presented have been based on developments of language acquisition, theory and research. Some of the methods will be considered also in terms of their links to more general psychological or educational traditions. The course aims to present and discuss in detail those language teaching methods that came into prominence during the last thirty years. As knowledge of methods is part of the knowledge base of teaching, the course aims to enable future English language teachers to make theory-informed choices in their teaching practice.
