Course description
  ENGLISH LANGUAGE TEACHING

Competencies and objectives

 

Course context for academic year 2018-19

The main objectives of this course are to increase the linguistic and educational skills necessary for the teaching and learning of the English language and literature in Primary Education. This involves the mastery of the English language in formal and academic areas (B1 level of the COMMON EUROPEAN FRAMEWORK) and training in teaching English language and literature in the educational context and for the different levels of Primary Education. Although the content of the course focuses on the teaching of the English language (as L2) the course has in mind that the teaching-learning of English language and literature occurs in the framework of plurilingual educational programs. 

This course is taught in the first year of the Education Degree in Primary Education. This course provides the professional skills necessary for the training of future teachers in teaching the language and is part of the itinerary to obtain a Mention in English.
