Teaching English to Dyslexic Foreign Language Learners

Project: Research


Dyslexia is a specific learning difficulty that has an effect not only on literacy skills in students´ first language, but also on foreign language learning. In order to ensure that dyslexic students successfully acquire necessary levels of foreign language competence, they need additional support.

Foreign language teachers often lack sufficient understanding of the nature of dyslexia and the difficulties it causes in foreign language learning and are not familiar with the relevant teaching techniques and methods to further the language learning processes of dyslexic students.

The project aims to develop a training course and self-study materials for pre- and in-service teachers of English as a foreign language in order to raise their awareness of the foreign language learning needs of dyslexic students.
