English - MA-course: Reading and Writing in a Foreign Language – Focus on Processes

Kursusindhold

This course in foreign language acquisition aims is to give participants a theoretical background for evaluating various aspects of the teaching of English as a foreign language in the Danish sixth-form college. For this a thorough theoretical background is needed. Therefore theories of foreign language learning/acquisition and of communicative competence will be studied. However, the focus of the course will be on language processing: on understanding the complex nature of foreign language production and reception processes. To apprecia­te results from studies of these processes, actual learner data will be used as illustration during the course. The question of research methods will also be addressed. For some participants the course might provide inspiration for research projects in relation to their thesis ('speciale'). The course will be conducted using a mixture of lectures, group work and dis­cussions. Course material will be based on a number of research articles on the course topics, selected from scholarly journals.
