5 Credits SPRING

Pre-requisites: MLT6062

Aims/Description: The module aims to enable MA students taking a foreign language module with the Languages for All Programme to engage further with their learning process and the language itself using a more analytical and independent approach. https://www.sheffield.ac.uk/mltc/lfa/courses/enhanced_languages Students will be asked to identify their language learning needs in relation to their Postgraduate studies and will learn ways to explore and develop strategies to become more effective independent language learners. They will develop their analytical skills by focussing on a specific aspect of the language system and by exploring specific language features of their choice in a sociolinguistic perspective. Most of the work will be carried out independently but students will also attend one introductory meeting and two seminars introducing the theoretical and practical framework for the completion of the Enhanced Languages Project and providing a forum for the discussion of appropriate research options.
