Discourse and Communication - LNGS7506

Year - 2018

Learning to speak and write effectively across a wide range of social contexts is crucial to all our lives. This unit considers genre (the social purpose of texts), and moves on to consider the ways language varies in terms of what we are talking about, who we are talking to and the medium we are using to communicate (speaking, writing, texting, posting etc.).
