This module begins with a brief overview of some of the basic linguistic, cognitive and sociocultural concepts informing Second Language Acquisition (SLA) Theory, and a review of the dominant methodologies of teaching/learning foreign languages. The module concentrates on the didactics of language teaching. Students will learn how to create activities and to assess different components of the Spanish language (e.g. grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary) along with the components of effective teaching tools, such as lesson planning, student needs analysis, materials developments and evaluation tools.
