Course Description

This seminar will explore different theories, approaches and methods useful for teaching at Primary School Level. As a basis for the seminar, the communicative approach will be employed. In addition to that, an evaluation of criteria for meaningful tasks in the Primary School classroom as suggested by Tasked/Based Language Teaching will be undertaken. Furthermore, different approaches to Language Learning such as CLIL and Cooperative Language Learning will be presented. A further emphasis is placed on more traditional approaches such as TPR. Also, participants will be familiarized with methods especially suitable for younger learners, for example songs, storytelling and games. A further significant aspect will be the evaluation of course books and their usefulness in the EFL Primary School Classroom. Based on the approaches to language teaching presented above, the basics of planning theme-based units and age-appropriate lessons will be introduced. Course requirements and literature needed for the class will be explained in the first session.
