MetadataShow full item record
During the recent years, an increasing number of students with learning difficulties (LD) has been considered as a global trend. When learning difficulties occur and are proved by the consultants of special education, further learning according to the Simplified National Curriculum for Basic Schools (SNCBS) may be suggested. In Estonia, in the academic year of 2018/2019 there were 1311 students in the second and third stage of basic education studying according to the SNCBS. Although Estonian educational system is offering students an opportunity to study according to the SNCBS, teaching English as a foreign language (EFL) is not supported by suitable study materials teachers can rely on. The aim of the present MA thesis is to discuss the principles used when teaching EFL to students with LD and to compile a study material for students with LD learning EFL according to the SNCBS. The main focus is on teaching reading. However, the created study material does not cover the entire course. The author of the present paper has just started compiling the material and on the basis of the experience the conclusions are drawn how the process of creating materials can be organized and what should be taken into account.
