This test is intended for Master 2 students in order to identify the problems learners have with the module of English for Specific Purposes (ESP). It also identifies areas of weaknesses and strengths that can be useful in writing clear and measurable learning objectives
This lecture explains that syllabus can be used interchangeably with curriculum in a narrow sense. It gives a full account of the main syllabus types, learners versus learning, grammatical, functional/notional, and communicative. This lecture also gives account of product versus process; content versus task based syllabus. Yet, syllabus might be, to a great extent, an implementation of the curriculum guidelines into practice (classroom).
By the end of the lecture, students are supposed to be able to:
Know the most common types of syllabus
Depict the similarities between syllabus types
Link every syllabus type to a prospective group of learners.
Students may regard theory as insufficient to be good enough to give syllabus guidelines for a group of learners.
The teacher designs a series of assignments by the end of the lecture in order to have a full picture of syllabus, syllabus components and learners’ profiles. An example will be illustrated as a sample to follow. Students exchange their answers once they are done and then a correction sheet is given to them for a comparison.
