Applied linguistics is concerned with the resolution of language related problems in real life situations. Domains of interest include language planning, language policy, language teaching schemes, bilingualism and multilingualism policies, language maintenance and revitalization, language in education, and second language acquisition. Case studies will be taken from English-speaking countries. We will compare policies in multilingual and monolingual countries in a bid to understand the policies behind language use and language problems in different contexts in the world.
