Issues in Language Teaching and Learning

In this course, we study current issues and controversial research in language learning and their implications for language teaching. The course is part of the master's programme in linguistics, but you can also study it as a free-standing course.

In the course we study and discuss current language education research on acquiring and teaching first, second and foreign languages. We also investigate the relationship between problematic areas of language education research and teaching practices in different contexts. With current language education research as a point of departure, we analyse and compare policy documents from different language teaching contexts.

You can study the course as a free-standing course or as a part of this master's programme:
