title Introducing English language studies
description <div><p>Language is an essential part of being human. It's something we rely on in almost every part of our lives. Nevertheless, do we really know what it is and how it works? History, culture, politics, technological innovation, and personal experience shape our use of language. This module will create strong links between broader language issues and the language and literacies that affect you as a student. It will develop your ability to talk about language, and help you apply your understanding of language issues to your own development as a communicator. You'll study a series of contemporary topics that investigate how people use language in everyday life, focusing on the role of English in a connected and diverse world.</p></div>
