It will describe second or foreign language theories, and basic studies in second language acquisition and their pedagogical implications. It will elaborate upon basic design for lesson plans and provide access to professional resources. In the final Capstone Project, in collaboration with Arizona State University’s Global Launch, you will apply the skills you learned by designing a lesson plan which includes learning outcomes, assessments, materials, classroom management techniques and the learning activities themselves. When you complete this specialization, go on to the second specialization in order to complete your TESOL certificate experience!

Recommended Background

    ★★★★★ (4) 6 weeks 20th May, 2019
    Through a series of engaging metaphors and stories, prospective and current EFL/ESL teachers will identify, summarize, and evaluate 7 basic language learning paradigms. Learners will be presented information on such foundational principles as motivation, risk taking, two different modes of learning, and balancing the teacher profession. Learners are also given an understanding of basic techniques founded on those principles, such as teacher talk, looking “ridiculous” in order to lower the affective filter, and networking. With these foundational principles in mind, ESL/EFL teachers will scrutinize common assumptions about language learning by comparing how they stack up to research-based core principles.
