Course Objective

This course aims at providing students with the basic knowledge of a second foreign language -chosen depending on needs and facilities- other than their first foreign language. The students will get familiar with the structure of the second foreign language, and they are motivated to study hard in order to become an advanced learner of that language.

Course Content

Depending on the facilities of the department, the student teachers may have the option of learning one of the following languages as a second foreign language requirement: German, French, Spanish, Italian, Arabic, Japanese, Chinese, Russian or Greek.

This course is an introduction to the basics of a second foreign language. It aims at providing student teachers with the skills required for basic communication. The aim for student teachers is to understand simple everyday dialogues and basic reading texts, express themselves and ask questions in the basic spoken language. To fulfil these aims, dialogues and reading texts are utilized. Student teachers are exposed to the basic structures and vocabulary items of the target language in communicative contexts, but grammar is not the primary focus. Listening is an important component of the course and is integrated especially with speaking. Besides, some insights into the target culture and life style will be given. *This course is prerequisite for Second Foreign Language II.
