Course content

English 2, module 1 builds upon English 1 and gives further insight into English subject didactic questions related to the education of young language learners and pupils in upper primary school. The course consists of further developing students' language proficiency and literary competence. The students will further develop their knowledge of linguistic structures, English as a world language, a variety of oral, written and visual texts, as well as historical and cultural issues within the English-speaking world. English 2, module 1 provides more experience with activities and methods that can inspire and promote learning, as well as further insight into choosing and using texts and other learning resources.

Learning methods and activities

The English subject comprises linguistic, cultural and literary components, which are closely linked. The course requires that students understand each component individually and collectively. Active participation is expected throughout the entire study process. Students are required to engage with course content through self-study outside of the organized teaching sessions, and through group work and the digital learning platform. Students will be assessed continuously throughout the course, and they will receive oral and written feedback from course instructors and peers. English will be used for both teaching and communication. Thus, it is expected that students use the language actively during teaching, and in written and oral communication. Further, students are expected to actively use the university library and to prepare for planned teaching. Through process- and product oriented work with assignments and self-assessment of these, in addition to presentations and active participation in the teaching, the students will contribute to, and receive supervision in, the progression of their studies.
