LANG 420 - Teaching English as an Additional Language

This course will acquaint those interested in teaching English to adults in foreign (EFL) or domestic (ESL) settings with current theories and models of second language acquisition, as well as assist them in developing an approach to teaching adult language learners that is sensitive to the learning context. Attention will be paid to the role of individual learning differences, culture, teaching purposes, teaching setting and values in the teaching and learning of English in EFL and ESL settings. Case studies will help students connect theory and practice. This course is particularly useful for those who may find themselves in domestic or foreign settings in which as native or near-native speakers of English they will be invited to teach English as a foreign or second language.
