Free Online Course on Dyslexia and Language Teaching

by Anna Gałucka

We are pleased to announce a free online learning course on 'Dyslexia and language teaching​ ​

which runs from 16th of April – 13th of May 2018.

This exciting course is offered by Lancaster University in cooperation with FutureLearn and takes place over four weeks entirely online.

It is aimed at English language teachers, teachers of modern foreign languages, teacher trainers, educators and trainee teachers who are interested in how they can accommodate and cater for the needs of students with dyslexia in foreign/second language​ ​classrooms.

In this course, which is based on the award-winning materials of the Dystefl project you can find out about the nature of dyslexia and how it affects the learning of additional languages.

You can explore a variety of useful techniques, including recent computer-assisted tools that you can take into the classroom to help students with dyslexia in acquiring another language. Lead educators Dr. Judit Kormos, Dr. Anne Margaret Smith and Dr. Bimali Indrarathne give practical guidance and advice on enhancing the phonological awareness, vocabulary knowledge and reading skills of dyslexic language learners.

The materials and tasks in the course can be applied for various age groups of dyslexic students and for a variety of language learning contexts including the teaching of English as a foreign/second language and the teaching of modern foreign languages.

Enrolment is now open and we are looking forward to welcoming you and your colleagues as one of our participants.
