By the end of the course, students should achieve the following objectives: 1. To gain sufficient knowledge about the historical development of second language learning research; 2. To gain fundamental understanding of the linguistic, psycholinguistic and sociolinguistic views on second language learning as set forth mainly by ESL/EFL researchers; 3. To relate second language learning theories to themselves as learners and/or teachers; 4. To develop basic skills of data collection and data analysis through hands-on experiences; 5. To critique classroom practices from an informed theoretical and research perspective. �

課程概述

This course is designed to explore major theories of second language acquisition in both naturalistic and instructed learning settings and uncover what the theories have to offer to second and foreign language teachers. The students will discuss learner centered influences on language learning and why these influences may help second language teachers account for features of learners’ language they observe. Finally, they will learn techniques for investigating student learning in the classroom.
