Course Description

Even in a communicative context, second language teachers need a basic awareness about the structure of language and possible differences between the first and second language they are teaching. The three basic language structures of phonology (sound structure), morphology (word structure), and syntax (sentence structure) will be illustrated on a number of levels.
