Understanding the Language Learner (7902LHS)

This course examines the nature of language learning with reference to theories of human learning and applied linguistics. In doing so, it investigates a host of variables pertaining to linguistic, cognitive, metacognitive and social-cognitive aspects of language learners. It also facilitates the knowledge of research methods and analytical tools used for the study of these aspects in relation to language learning and acquisition. Students will be given opportunities to examine and analyse published and/or authentic data that demonstrate their knowledge in terms of the content areas covered in the course.
