English for Young Learners: Language Education I, 7.5 credits

This is a freestanding course suitable for students who intend to teach English at primary school level. The purpose of the course is to provide students with a theoretical and practical basis for communicative language teaching. The course addresses oral and written activities. The student will have the opportunity to develop the vocabulary relevant for the teaching profession, to give instructions and to describe and analyze common classroom activities in English. In addition, the student will develop, present and theoretically justify classroom activities that aim to develop lexical, grammatical and phonological structures through rhymes, chants, songs, drama and digital tools. The course also provides the students with opportunities to plan English language teaching based on current curricula and language education theory.
