EAL Teachers need to have an in-depth understanding of all systemic aspects of language- lexical, morphological, syntactical, and phonological, and their associated structures and functions. This unit enhances these understandings and also raises awareness of the pedagogical applications of linguistic knowledge. In this unit students will also develop the ability to assess the spoken and written language abilities of EAL learners at different levels of proficiency and monitor their development through stages. 

This unit is tailored specially for VIT registered teachers who seek additional expertise in dealing with non-English speaking background students in mainstream classes.
