Linguistic Methods and the Teaching of English

The module Linguistic Methods and the Teaching of English [Sprachwissenschaftliche Methoden und Englischunterricht] will enable you to explore language on a sound theoretical basis and to apply these linguistic skills in foreign language teaching. Within the framework of theoretical linguistics you will study the grammatical properties of the English language. In addition, you will take a comparative view on other languages and relate, in a systemic way, core theoretical concepts to applied issues, such as those pertaining to language acquisition, comprehension and language change. You will thus familiarise yourselves with a set of analytic tools enabling you to examine the English language from different scientific perspectives and to use this competence in foreign language teaching.

The module consists of one seminar in linguistics for students taking English as a major subject and two seminars for students taking English as a minor subject, respectively, as well as of a (more practically oriented) English-language course.
