CPED 6557 Second Language Acquisition


CourseCPED 6557: CPED 6557 Second Language Acquisition - T 5:10-7:00pm, (97147)

CPED 6557: Second Language Acquisition (SLA) will help students understand the process of learning an additional language and connect language acquisition to teaching second and foreign/world languages.

Three essential questions about second language acquisition will be addressed:

·       How do we learn additional languages?

·       What factors contribute to variability in language learning?

·       How do we become proficient in additional languages?

In exploring these questions, students will examine their own beliefs about second language acquisition in light of theory and research findings. Students will also connect theory and research to classroom instruction for learners of English and/or foreign language.
