Course Description

Language - Second Language Learning & Teaching

This two year part-time programme provides language teachers with professional and academic opportunities and actively engages language practitioners in a collective reflection on the processes of language learning and teaching. Moreover, the course mirrors current trends and debates in language learning in Ireland and in Europe.

The course is open to teachers of Italian, Spanish, German, French, Irish and/or English as a second/foreign language. The issues addressed in the programme are relevant to all language teachers interested in Second Language Learning theories and second language learning and teaching methodologies. However, relevance at the individuals level is ensured by the opportunity to evaluate and develop materials for her/his own class/es and to reflect on her/his practice.
