This subject explores the complex relationship between language and culture, and considers both in terms of linguistic and cultural diversity. The subject applies understandings of each to the teaching and learning of language. An emphasis is placed on understanding 'culture' from a range of critical perspectives, and to explore the way in which intercultural communication is at play in English language learning and teaching. Issues of identity, the emergence of 'world Englishes', and the contribution of critical sociolinguistics are considered in relation to the practice of English language learning and teaching
