Language Development for Teachers

Language Development for Teachers takes you through how language develops in children from a child's first words to becoming fluent in language. The course will help you to understand lexical development and will unpick the major theories of how language develops.

The theories explained in this course are:

  • Behaviourism
  • Interactionism
  • Nativism
  • Cognitivism
  • Social constructionism

This course is perfect for teachers with a specific interest in linguistics and teachers looking to support students with low oracy skills.

Thank you to Dr Flavia Belham for writing this course.
