Grammar and Vocabulary Acquisition
- SS 17
|154323||Grammar and Vocabulary Acquisition - Blockseminar||2 PS/HS||
This seminar focuses on grammar and vocabulary as the building blocks of learning a second language. The first part of the course will cover theories of second language acquisition as they relate to grammar and vocabulary acquisition as well as empirical research findings in this field. The focus in the second part of the course will be on the teaching of grammar and vocabulary in a classroom setting. We will consider questions such as how to create communicative and cooperative learning opportunities for different types of learners, how to incorporate media and a variety of teaching activities, how to choose items of grammar or lexis for focus in the EFL classroom, and how to assess grammatical and lexical competence.
The seminar will follow a hands-on approach that will encourage students to think about the issues of grammar and vocabulary acquisition from a scientific as well as a pedagogical perspective through activities such as brainstorming research questions and designing teaching sequences and tasks.
Course requirements will be announced in the first session.
