Credit points: 30

Subject outline

In this subject students explore some of the ways in which language is used. The emphasis is on understanding and describing how people actually make use of language and how this impacts on communication, particularly between native speakers and learners of a language and their settings. Theoretical and practical issues in the investigation of authentic language use are considered, and the practical implications for teachers, language curriculum developers and others involved in interactions are explored.
