Language Structure | TESL.X302


Knowledge of language structure and use, with emphasis on language universals and varieties, is fundamental to developing teaching expertise in TESOL and bilingual education. In this seminar, participants review theories and research in linguistics and sociolinguistics related to teaching. Readings, lectures and activities focus on sound systems (phonology), word formation (morphology), grammar (syntax), word meanings (semantics), language in context, written and oral discourse, and language variation. The structure of selected languages and transcription of sounds will also be discussed.


Learning Outcomes:
At the conclusion of the course, you should be able to

  • Distinguish between phonology, morphology, syntax, and semantics
  • Analyze spoken language, text and discourse
  • Develop lesson plans that help ESL students achieve communicative language competence
  • Discuss language change and variation
