This introductory seminar presents a survey of the main fields of Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL). We will refer to important principles underlying second language learning and we will discuss the different purposes, participants, practices, competences, areas and contexts of language teaching, learning and use. In addition, we will explore contemporary and more traditional approaches to foreign language teaching such as task-based language learning (TBL), content and language integrated learning (CLIL), the grammar-translation method (GT) and audio-lingualism.
Note: You have to enrol for only one of the TEFL courses offered by me and my colleagues! If you attend my course on Tuesday, you don't have to attend any other TEFL course.
