Inhalt This course examines how languages are learned and gives a first overview of the relevant research in this relatively new academic field. It provides the theoretical backbone to modern language teaching methodology.
Lernziele Students develop the following competencies: (i) They know about first and second language acquisition theories and their implication on language learning methodology. (ii) They understand in what ways learning a first language is different from learning a second language later in life. (iii) They are familiar with the approaches in SLA which have been influenced
 by linguistic theories (contrastive analysis, error analysis, universal
 grammar, functional approaches). (iv) They are familiar with approaches in SLA which have been influenced by the field of psychology (language and the brain, learning processes, individual differences in second language learning). (v) They understand the importance of the social and cultural context in language learning. (vi) They are familiar with the differences between natural and instructional settings in SLA. (vii) They understand the six proposals for the classroom as discussed in Lightbown & Spada (2013), what assumptions they are based on, what
 common classroom practices derived from them and what research found
out about their effectiveness.
