Critical Language Awareness in Modern Times Educators’ Views and Related Issues: An Exploratory Study

Critical Language awareness (CLA) is inseparably relevant to various aspects of education, language learning, pedagogical strategies, culture, social backgrounds, political dimensions of global hegemony, and world issues. This research is an attempt to explore and rethink views of instructors in one of the private universities in Kuwait about critical language awareness feasibility and dimensions within the contextual social encounters with learners in the language classroom, and interrelated matters of practice and application. This exploration aims eventually at improving the teaching conditions in regard to the new trends of education that control the performance of language teachers.


About the Speaker

My name is Hayam Mohamed. I am a senior instructor at one of the private universities in Kuwait. I teach English for specific purposes, business introduction, communication, and life development courses. My interest in critical language awareness and its relevance to issues of globalization, marketization, and power relations is based on my long teaching experience in different contexts and for different levels, and has developed because of the difficulty to take teaching to a higher level than the lexical and syntactical. The reasons are many but not definite or inclusive; thus, exploring what others in the same context do or say is intriguing and promising.
