Credit points: 15
Major issues in and approaches to TESOL and LOTE teaching are examined for teachers specialising in either of these areas. Topics include the role of the teacher and learner; the aims, activities, techniques and methodologies used to teach language in different classes; and the extent to which these approaches suit different contexts and purposes of language teaching. TESOL (both within and beyond Australia) and LOTE teaching to children, adolescents and adults are examined and related to each other according to the particular interests of students.
