Masters in Teaching English: research project topics

Masters in Teaching English: research project topics | TELT | Scoop.it
This week our second-year Masters students in the English teaching programme at the University of Nice presented their end-of-year classroom research projects to an audience of university and secondary school teachers and their peers. We heard thirty presentations on different dimensions of teaching English as a foreign language (EFL) in French secondary schools, which include both lower secondary (collège, 11-15 years) and upper secondary (lycée, 16-18 years). The students are pre-service teachers; the majority have passed national competitive teacher entrance exams and have taught part-time through this school year, with support from mentor teachers and university tutors. Some have yet to pass the exams and had shorter school placements under the direct supervision of a school tutor.

Having specific objectives for pre/while/post listening will help students better understand what they are listening to in another language.  This article gives specific examples of how to activate better listening at these three stages.
