In this work, the author aims to show that applied linguistics is better understood by doing it than studying or reading about it. Beginning with the history and definitions of applied linguistics, he then looks at the full spectrum of "institutional" and "non-institutional" uses of language, spanning not only language learning and teaching but also language as a socio-psychological phenomenon.
