Created by:Delivered by:

In this course learners are introduced to second or foreign language theories and practices for teaching and assessing listening, speaking, and pronunciation. Learners will also be introduced to basic studies in second language acquisition and their pedagogical implications. Teachers will be invited to recognize the importance of grounding their own teaching philosophy through an examination of purpose, content, and technique.

Teach English Now! Theories of Second Language Acquisition is course 2 of 4 in the TESOL Certificate, Part 1: Teach English Now! Specialisation.

This specialization is the first of two specializations that make up the TESOL Certificate from Arizona State University. In this specialization, you will learn about the basic foundational principles of language acquisition and the basic techniques founded upon those principles. 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!
