Teachers need an understanding of theory about second language learning. They also need to know how principles have been translated successfully into practice in the classroom.
This course links theory with practice in teaching the four macroskills: listening, speaking, reading and writing with vocabulary and grammar incorporated. Language learning objectives and outcomes are based on a student learning orientation aimed at developing communicative competence in contexts that are socially and culturally relevant. Principles of second language teaching methodology are grounded in principles of second language learning that are addressed in the LIN8001 course and are assumed knowledge for this course. It is highly recommended that LIN8001 be studied prior to LIN8002.
