ENGL 3376: Contrastive Linguistics

Course compares phonemic, morphological and syntactical differences between English and a sampling of other languages represented in the public schools. It seeks to provide the prospective teacher with the opportunity to identify sources of difficulty experienced by students for whom English is a second language. Students will also study works by international writers. Students are required to tutor a limited English-proficient student for a minimum of 15 hours.
