This module introduces you to some major theories of how languages are learned and to some approaches to how languages can be taught. We will consider the differences between first and second language acquisition; whether there is a “best” age to learn a foreign language; why some people learn languages more easily than others; and some particular problems for learners of English. Students will have the opportunity to investigate one or more of these questions in their assessed essays.
