Language Acquisition

LAN3500 Language Acquisition (3)

This course presupposes that communication and language acquisition is a cultural event, not just an academic exercise, and that real communication occurs in a contextualized format. The duration of the course is spent learn-ing one language of the student's choice conversationally. Fieldwork with multiple first language speakers of the chosen language is required weekly to facilitate the learning process. Instruction in language learning strategy, method, and a missiological mind-set are the focal points.
