Systemic Functional Linguistics and the classroom

experience of SFL or those who want a refresher course. The applied course 
assumes a good foundation in SFL and is suited for people interested in 
applying SFL to educational settings. Both are suitable for professionals, 
students, and researchers who have an interest in learning more about 
Systemic Functional Linguistics and its applications. 

Provisional programme to include:
Functional grammar; Phonology and intonation; Text analysis; UAM

Classroom discourse; SFL in language learning.
