Then learner 's language system and the way it changes over time is investigated. The importance of pragmatics in language use and how it can change meaning in a given context is also discussed. To make use of code-switching, different models and taxonomies related to it are reviewed based on which beneficial teaching techniques and useful classroom activities are suggested.
