چکیده مقاله
Among miscellany of ELT models, Applied ELT, proposed by Pishghadam (2011), holds a new perspective toward language teaching as an independent field, ready to be applied to other areas of knowledge and education. It goes beyond the mere teaching of language to develop psychological skills and life issues according to the “life syllabus”. Enlarging upon this paradigm, Applied ELT by providing the “life syllabus”, aims at nurturing learner’s whole person and advancing student’s life qualities such as critical thinking, self-confidence, motivation and creativity by making use of various types of contents. Overviewing Applied ELT brings to mind that whether this paradigm is another expansion of “Content-based and immersion programs”, relying on the basic idea that Content-based instruction is an approach to language teaching which integrates the learning of language with the learning of some other contents, often academic subject matters(freeman,2000).This study is going to shed light on similarities and differences between Content-Based Instruction and the newly developed paradigm called Applied ELT and the “Life Syllabus”.
