教育目標

By the end of the course, students should have achieved the following objectives: 1. To gain fundamental understanding of the linguistic, psycholinguistic and sociolinguistic views on second language learning as set forth mainly by ESL/EFL researchers; 2. To relate second language learning theories to themselves as learners and teachers; 3. To critique classroom practices from an informed theoretical and research perspective; 4. To write a research agenda on second language learning.

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.
