This course aims to equip prospective teachers of English language with knowledge of the theoretical background and principles of task-based instruction. Accordingly, the course is structured to help prospective teachers to develop skills in setting learning goals, designing and implementing lesson plans in line with the principles of task-based instruction. It also provides an overview of classroom-based research, teacher directed research and action research, diagnosing learners’ language related needs and remedial teaching activities; principles of learner monitoring and role of learner assessment in lesson planning; national and international professional organizations (e.g.: TESOL and INGED) and practical journals (e.g.: English Teaching Forum, ELTJ, TESLJ and TESL Reporter).

Rewing language teaching methods is one of the goals of the course. The other goals are designing and conducting needs analysis on language learner needs (e.g.: situational, objective,subjective and language needs), writing objectives that reflect these needs and designing course syllabus at the macro level and micro level; an overview of different lesson stages (i.e.: Presentation, Practice and Production) and approaches to lesson planning and course design; various syllabus types and criteria for the selection of appropriate syllabus type according to the learner needs, learner age and aims of the course; standards-based teaching, proficiency descriptors, English language proficiency standards and guidelines, Common European Framework and the European Language Portfolio; and identity. This course also provides prospective teachers with insights into the behaviour problems occurring commonly in classrooms and to prepare them to be effective managers of their classrooms so that student learning is maximised.

ELTE208 LANGUAGE ACQUISION 0 2 0
This course presents an overview of the theories of first and second language acquisition (e.g.: behaviorism, innatism, information processing, connectionism, the interactionist position) and focuses on the developmental stages and sequences of first and target language acquisition. Case studies, comparative analysis of the use of native and target languages in corpus data (e.g.: CHILDES database), recordings and/or transcriptions of real second language classroom interaction will be employed for the analysis of first and second language acquisition; comparison of second language acquisition in children and in adults; identifying developmental sequences in first language acquisition; stages in second language morpho-syntactic development; processes in second language acquisition; learner characteristics and individual variation in ultimate attainment in second language acquisition (e.g.: role of personality, language aptitude, intelligence, age of acquisition, motivation and attitudes, learner preferences and beliefs); differences between second language acquisition and foreign language learning contexts (e.g.: natural vs. instructional settings). Lectures, group and pair work activities will be utilized.

This course, which is the continuation of ELTE303, deals with the basic principles of language teaching, diverse procedures to be used in language teaching, the preparation of language teaching plans in line with diverse language teaching methods, practical suggestions for lesson planning, classroom management and delivering effective lessons, the teaching of pronunciation, listening, reading, speaking, writing, vocabulary, grammar and functions of language. This course also places emphasis on the diverse stages of a lesson plan and the techniques to be followed in lesson planning, the features to be taken into consideration in the preparation of a lesson plan such as age, learners’ level of target language.
