BLE 307 - Language Acquisition

3 credits
Exploration of current approaches, processes, and materials used to promote first and second language acquisition. Introduction of interrelationship of psychological, social, cultural, and educational factors influencing learning and language fluency. Discuss interdisciplinary perspectives of second-language acquisition and their application to classroom practices. Particular emphasis on generative models of syntax: analysis of important syntactics structures of English, exploration of acquisition and internalization of those structures in first- and second-language learners through field observations of L1 and L2 English language learners, and hands-on experience of teaching methods (such as sentence combining) and assessment based on those conclusions. Offered Spring semesters. Prerequisite(s): ENG 330 .
