EDUC 6210 - Linguistics and Language Acquisition

Hours: 3
This course offers a foundation in approaches and techniques for teaching second languages from the vantage point of linguistics and second language acquisition (SLA) research. While the course is designed to introduce current SLA research and theories, it is not a theory course per se. Rather the course will help develop a strong theoretical foundation. Topics include: Theories of first and second language acquisition, including the many issues involved in language learning, history of methods of language teaching and learning, current approaches to SLA, and language teaching techniques based on sound principles of SLA.
