A language teacher's role is not only critical in teaching a language, but also in teaching the cultures and societies that surround the language. Sociolinguistics and Language Teaching looks at the relationship between language and society and the importance of showing language in a real social setting. The easy-to-follow and reflective guide covers multilingualism, gender bias, identity development, and the role of gatekeepers in language learning policy and practices.
