The module aims to familiarise students with some well-known facts about how second languages are learned. Students will be able to describe some of the ways in which learners develop knowledge of a second language, have a clear understanding of some of the topics which have been addressed by researchers who have studied second language learner development, and they will have assessed some of the theories which have been proposed to account for second language development. After a brief historical overview of SLA research, they will focus on up-to-date theories. Some of the theoretical topics that students will cover are universal grammar, cognitive approaches, input and interaction, socio-cultural perspective, and socio-linguistic perspectives.
