Introduction to Language, Society and Culture

This course allows the BAELS students to explore the inextricable link between and among language, culture, and society and its implications to the development of English as a global language and the ways by which it is learned and taught. With this, they must demonstrate content knowledge and application of the lingua franca to cultural, societal, and even pedagogical development through a study of research-based principles in language and language teaching. Also, they must be able to gain insights of responsive learning environments in terms of language and community/society needs.
