Course description

Short description

This lecture course surveys some of the basic issues and areas which fall under the broad heading of "applied linguistics". Topics to be covered include: multicompetence, foreign language learning and teaching, bilingual education, language policy and planning, World Englishes, language and the law, and research methods. The course will look at applied linguistics not only from the “linguistics applied” point of view, but will also present applied linguistics as a distinct branch of linguistics.
