APLN 000/5313 - Second Language Listening and Speaking: Theory and Practice (3 cr.)

APLN 5300 .

Drawing on previous research in second language acquisition, this course will examine pedagogical applications of various theories of language learning to the teaching of ESL listening and speaking. The main topics emphasized in the course are the following: designing and constructing listening and speaking tasks at different levels of difficulty while achieving a balance between accuracy and fluency, criteria for selecting authentic vs. pedagogically- designed listening tasks, teaching macro- and micro- listening strategies, analyzing the linguistic and pragmatic skills required for spoken interaction, and developing assessment criteria and contexts for the language classroom. Ways to integrate listening and speaking activities into other language classes and learning contexts will also be considered.
