Description

Theoretical and practical aspects of second language learning.

COURSE DETAILS:

Linguistics 360 is an overview of some of the major issues and research findings in the field of second language acquisition (SLA). It will help you understand their importance in the context of the adult second language classroom. 

We will cover topics on theory and research in SLA: input and interaction, learner variation (age, motivation, experience, and aptitude), learner output, and second language teaching methods. Students will have the opportunity to reflect on their own experiences as language learners, as well as to evaluate methods of SLA pedagogy.

Registrar Notes:

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY: YOUR WORK, YOUR SUCCESS

SFU’s Academic Integrity website http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating. Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.

Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the university community. Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the university. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the university. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
