This course is designed to give students a good introduction to the theory of second language acquisition as well as the practice of teaching (overseeing the learning) of a second language. Course content will give attention both to language acquisition for adults as well as for children. A particular focus of the course is second language acquisition and teaching for populations of migrants and refugees wherever these might be. Accordingly, the learning focus will be on learning a national or international language in a structured environment. The course includes a practicum in which students participate in a program designed to help these populations learn the language(s) of their new region.
