Please see the information below about another PD opportunity from the EU Speak project. For more information, please follow the link at the end. Thanks, Susan
The EU-Speak project is pleased to offer the sixth in its suite of free on-line modules Acquisition and Assessment of Morphosyntax.
The module is available in English as well as Finnish, German, Spanish and Turkish to all practitioners, including volunteers, who work with adult migrants with little or no formal education or literacy in their language(s) of origin.
The module covers what we know from half a century of research on how adults acquire syntax (word order) and functional morphology (little words and endings) in a new language. It includes assessment of learners’ morphosyntactic achievement. The module ends with a whole-module virtual conference where participants will share a facet of their own learners’ acquisition.
The module begins Oct. 20. To find out more and to register visit: http://research.ncl.ac.uk/eu-speak/eu-speak32015to2018/module6morphosyntax/
