Teaching of Listening&Speaking

Teaching of Listening & Speaking in L2 Contexts

This seminar will introduce TESOL and TFL MA candidates to the teaching of speaking and listening in second and foreign language contexts. Topics to be covered include factors that influence L2 listening, target language interaction, accuracy and fluency in speaking, pronunciation, pragmatics, and helping learners overcome their anxiety about speaking and listening in their second or foreign language(s). Assessment issues will also be addressed near the end of the course.

This is a variable unit seminar. That is, it may be taken for either two or three units, depending on the individual student’s needs and/or course load. All students will attend 45 hours of class, but the students taking the course for three units will do an additional assignment (to be negotiated with the instructor).
