Students will be able to understand how the English language has changed over time.
Our ultimate goal is to discuss how language is a source of power in society. Though language is constantly changing (and has been constantly changing) we hold certain types of English in much higher regard in the business world. Code-switching can be a powerful tool for students to learn and utilize.
