Cooperative learning in the context of foreign language teaching and learning

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Teaching/learning of ESP (English for Specific Purposes) at higher educational level is oriented towards foreign language specific to a subject and containing context-bound items expressing curricular concepts and phenomena of a subject. However more and more researches appear showing that during the course of professional foreign language speaking and writing skills are mastered worse than reading and listening skills. Cooperative learning (CL) method provides more opportunities for communication, and this has influence on academic, cognitive and social students’ development. The paper highlights relations and expressions of CL and both language and social competences. The study results show that the implementation of CL method promote the development of students’ linguistic and social competences during the studies of ESP.
