Language Pedagogy

Language pedagogy encompasses theories and practices related to teaching second, foreign or heritage languages in a variety of institutional, cultural and political contexts. Current research, curricular developments, and instructional designs are focused on task-based language teaching,  content-based language instruction, community-based language learning and technology-enhanced language learning among others. These seek to facilitate acquisition of linguistic knowledge, development of interactional, interpretive and presentational skills, awareness and understanding of diverse cultural perspectives, and strategies for life-long learning.
