The first lecture will take place ONLINE via Moodle.

After that we will work with a rotation between groups, as there are too many beginners to fit into the lecture hall under COVid conditions. So each of you will watch the stream online in some sessions and come to the lecture hall for others. We look forward to seeing all of you in person throughout the semester!

Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This lecture course forms the first part of a one-year introductory program that aims at providing first-year students of English teacher education with an overview of the major areas of linguistic knowledge and their relevance for learning and teaching English as a foreign language. In the first semester, we study English words and their internal architecture (morphology and word-formation). We will then investigate the meanings of words and sentences (semantics) and consider different approaches to grammar, studying how words combine to form phrases and sentences (syntax). In general, we will discuss characteristic features of human language. Students will also learn some facts about the external history of English and mechanisms of language change.

Assessment and permitted materials

written examination, multiple choice (part of the STEOP exam)
ON SITE

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Students will be familiar with the basic principles of morphology, word-formation, semantics and syntax, and will be able to apply their knowledge to English texts. Students will be aware of the relevance of the newly acquired linguistic knowledge and skills for English language learning and teaching.
