Language Learning and Japanese Language Teaching MA

This programme is offered in partnership with the Institute of International Education in London. Students are given an academically rigorous programme that explores linguistics issues relating to the Japanese language. It also analyses research in applied linguistics, particularly research activities and themes that impinge on the language learning environment, such as second language acquisition, language testing, communicative language learning and classroom-based research.

The programme also explores the interface between research in language learning and the practical learning environment, with an emphasis on the teaching of Japanese, and evaluates the role and future of information technology within a resource-based language-learning framework.

The aims of the programme are:

  • To explore linguistics issues in the Japanese language
  • To analyse the research in applied linguistics, in particular the research activities and themes that impinge on the language learning environment such as second language acquisition, language testing, communicative language learning and classroom-based research
  • To explore the interface between research in language learning and the practical learning environment with an emphasis on the teaching of Japanese
  • To evaluate the role and future of information technology within source-based language learning framework
  • To develop an awareness of non-traditional (i.e. non-classroom teaching) methods of language learning.
