Form, function and social context all play a big role in the development of a studentís language in the classroom. One of the most important aspects of this development is learning the language in the context of what is happening now. This can happen either by having current events discussions or by allowing students to share what is happening in their lives.

For students to maximize their learning, they not only need to learn how to speak the language well, but they also need to learn how to read it and write it.

Social context includes the setting and the speakers of the content. The form includes the pronunciation and the grammar of the words. The function is the intention of the speaker or the communication. Applying each of these to the learning is important for the learnerís development.
