Sociolinguistic Competence: Classroom Implications
As a classroom implication, it would be of value to show our students the social linguistic competence and practice it in the classroom ourselves as well help them learn it. Providing them with examples and having them participate in "real life" situations may help them understand the importance of culture and that when you say phrases/words differently they can imply different meanings.
