The module is dedicated to students who have acquired C1 level of the English language during their first cycle studies and are training for teaching English on the early level during their second cycle studies.
The following topics are discussed at the module The Didactics of Teaching English on the Early Level I:
Students get to know and define terms of linguistic and intercultural awareness and get acquainted with the research results in Europe and elsewhere in this field, e.g. positive effects of developing linguistic awareness with young learners, possibilities for opening towards linguistic and cultural variety, raising pupils’ motivation for foreign language learning, impediments and accelerators of language acquisition etc. Students discover main characteristics of some English speaking countries and other European countries and compare them to the characteristics of Slovenia and the Slovene language. They compare them in a scientific and methodologically appropriate way.
Furthermore, students get acquainted with materials for linguistic and intercultural awareness appropriate for primary level pupils and they try to create similar materials, including English, Slovene and other languages students might know or are interested in. Students find out similarities and differences between languages included in materials and thus develop metalinguistic competence and competence of learning any language as well as susceptibility for linguistic and cultural variety and developing tolerance towards otherness.
