5 Credits AUTUMN

Aims/Description: This unit aims to enable MA students taking a foreign language module with the Languages-for-All programme to engage further with their independent learning of the language in relation to their Postgraduate studies. Designing, implementing, and assessing personal strategies to become more effective independent learners, students will choose and explore specific aspects of the language from a linguistic and a sociolinguistic perspectives. Most of the work will be carried out independently but two seminars will introduce the theoretical and practical framework for the completion of a Project Portfolio and provide a forum for the discussion of appropriate research options. https://www.sheffield.ac.uk/mltc/lfa/courses/enhanced_languages

Teaching Methods: Seminars, Independent Study
Assessment: Project/ portfolio
