EUROPEAN LANGUAGES IN CONTEXT: ISSUES IN LANGUAGE
Not currently offered
Credit points: 15
In this subject students examine issues in learning European languages such as: popular ideas about language learning, how language is learned in the classroom, what factors shape the learning and approaches to explaining second language learning. Using trans-European case studies from Italy, Spain and France other issues affecting language learning will be covered including cultural awareness, politics and identity. Lectures are taught in English; however, students majoring in Spanish will attend tutorials in Spanish and complete their written work in the Spanish language.
