Teaching of Listening&Speaking

This three-unit course will introduce TESOL-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, accuracy and fluency in speaking, pronunciation, and helping learners overcome their anxiety about speaking and listening in their second or foreign language(s). Both textbooks are written in English and their examples are about teaching English, but TFL candidates are welcome to enroll and to focus on teaching speaking and listening in their target languages.

Each participant is expected to attend all the class meetings, to participate regularly and actively in class discussions, and to complete a course projects in a timely and creative manner. Results of the course project will be presented orally and shared with class members in a mock conference presentation and shared on the course Canvas.
