We want to welcome  you all, to this course,  Theories of Language Learning and Teaching. We think you will find it an important  component of the BA program.  We hope you will enjoy the course and find it useful in learning and acquiring  information about  L2 learning and teaching. It will give you a starting point from which you can  think and reflect upon how  you view  L2 teaching and why we should/shouldn’t be  doing what we do in the L2 classroom. From this, we hope you will think about your own beliefs about teaching so that you can confirm and/or adapt your  own ways of teaching and put yourself on the path to informed teaching.
