On completing this course students will:
1. understand the fundamental theories in applied linguistics;
2. analyze language data based on concepts from applied linguistics;
3. design a lesson plan with key concepts and principles in light of applied linguistics;
4. be able to relate applied linguistics issues to themselves as language learners and teachers; and
5. critically discuss and comment on applying the trends and approaches of applied linguistics into EFL classroom instruction.
This course introduces students to the broad field of applied linguistics and several areas under its domain, such as grammar, pragmatics, corpus linguistics, and sociolinguistics (areas not covered by other MA required courses will be more emphasized). Research approaches and methodologies for applied linguistics will also be considered. The course content especially emphasizes the relevance of applied linguistics to foreign language pedagogy, and students will be encouraged to make such connections.
