Abstract

Pragmatics is one of the major fields of applied linguistics studying the language in relation to the context in which it is used. Foreign language taught by non-native language teachers is mostly consolidated by the coursebooks that are used as course materials. Acknowledging the language skills and 'discourse literacy' are enhanced even more with pragmatic competence, this paper specifically concentrates on how speech acts, an important component of pragmaics, are taught at International Burch University. In this respect, the currently used coursebooks are analyzed to identify how much speech acts are taught and how this adds up to the overall foreign language competence. After the survey conducted with the students and interviews with the course teachers, teaching implications of the study are stated.
