This area emphasizes critical analysis and discussion of key issues and theoretical concepts in the area of Language  Education.  It  focuses  on  the  respective  roles  of  English  and  other  languages  in  diverse multilingual and multicultural settings and will include, in the context of English language teaching and learning, the implications for language education of the developing roles of English in international and multilingual settings. The implications of this for language policy and pedagogy are explored. This naturally involves a study of the roles research can play in language education and includes paradigms of enquiry and critical enquiry.
