A new way of looking at garment instruction has come to be known as language awareness. It refers to the development of the learners to enhance consciousness of sensitivity to the forms and functions of language. The author, James Bourke also elaborated the differences between language awareness and traditional grammar.


Language is not a body of set up facts  about grammar. It comes from a meaning that develops in the learner‘s awareness when we learn to be aware of a language. We tend to correct ourselves when we make grammar errors and mispronounce. This will remind us to be correct and at the same time to be fluent in the language.


Language discourse, phonology, and linguistics, grammar and sociolinguistics are really very helpful in language learning.I agree that language awareness techniques must be implemented. This helps students in a way to vary their learning experiences. Linguistic problems solving, error detecting , and correction restoring,  C-test and Cloze ways are very exciting. fun, and challenging.


Language awareness will always be effective when you aim for accuracy in using grammar in paper and pen tests, but students maybe hesitant to speak the language .
