Language for Specific Purposes - APPL940

This unit provides an introduction to major issues in language for specific purposes, focusing on language in professional and business contexts. We consider the implications of globalisation for communication in such contexts, focusing on the use of electronic forms of communication and the increasing importance of some languages as lingua franca. Particular emphasis is placed on intercultural communication. Implications for language teaching in terms of course and materials design and development, assessment, and the management of language programs are discussed. Students will have the opportunity to follow their own interests in their selection of assignments.
