Applied Linguistics

A course is the study of a particular topic within a wider subject area and is the foundation of a qualification. A typical course includes lectures, assessments and tutorials.

Studying bilingualism and second-language acquirement through conversation and language acquisition analysis helps applied linguistics researchers develop theories about language learning. This information can then be used to shape language policy and more effectively teach students.
