Language is a tool for thought and communication. It is also a cultural and aesthetic means commonly shared among
a people to make better sense of the world they live in. Learning to use language effectively enables learners you to
acquire knowledge, to express identity, feelings and ideas, to interact with others, and to manage world. It
also provides you with a rich, powerful and deeply rooted set of images and ideas that can be used to make your
world other than it is; better and clearer. It is through language that cultural diversity and social relations
are expressed and constructed, and it is through language that such constructions can be altered, broadened and
refined.
