Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Topic: Multilingualism and language education

This course will provide an introduction to contemporary theoretical and research developments in the study of multilingualism and consider their relevance for language teachers. We will critically explore the implications of various aspects of multilingualism for the teaching and learning of foreign languages and how these might influence our pedagogical practice.
The course combines mini-lectures, on- and off-line assignments, reading-based group work and discussion, and individual research work leading to a presentation and final written paper (either term paper or BA-thesis).

Course objectives:
By the end of this course participants will be able to:
explain some contemporary theories of multilingualism
identify the influence of these theories on language teaching
develop teaching ideas based on this understanding
