This subject explores the theories and practices of English language teaching in contemporary society and critically examines the theoretical assumptions that underpin various approaches to TESOL. With a focus on the teaching and learning of spoken language, it develops knowledge and skills to analyse 'classroom talk'. It also examines approaches to program design and methodology, and provides frameworks to analyse ways in which institutional and curriculum structures impact on the broad range of English language learners in linguistically and culturally diverse contexts.
