After the course the student will be able to|
- understand and appreciate different ways of looking at Second Language Acquisition;
- engage with current research on the linguistics/education interface;
- formulate a relevant research question in SLA/education and transform it into a coherent research setup.
Second Language Acquisition has become a full-fledged subfield of linguistics with its own myriad of approaches. This course invites students to explore and develop a deeper understanding of the field and the way it interfaces with language teaching. To do so, we read and discuss overview and in-depth papers, compare approaches and interact with researchers in SLA and/or education in the Netherlands. The students gradually work towards making their own contribution to the field of SLA and/or language teaching based on their own research interests.|
The course features guest lectures by policy makers, researchers and/or teachers who bridge the gap between linguistics research and education
