Applied Linguistics for English Language Educators

3 CREDITS    |    TERM 1

The purpose of this course is to equip students with knowledge of the systems of the English language (phonology/phonetics, morphology, grammar, syntax, lexicon) and its elements in action (discourse and pragmatics) both from a teacher and student perspective. By comparing the learners’ L1 and English, students will be able to integrate research-based strategies and the principles of the systems of the English language in teaching and assessing the learners’ speaking, listening, reading and writing in the classroom.
