FORMS AND FUNCTIONS OF LANGUAGE IN EDUCATION
Credit points: 15
The focus in this subject is on the relationships between the forms and functions of language in the classroom and forms and functions of language in other contexts. Exploring these relationships is the basis for students to reflect on what they as teachers need to know about the language they are teaching and how the features of that language need to be presented to people learning that language.
