    Sociolinguistics is a huge area- all language has a social context, and the relationships within the societies using that language are generally complex. In ESL, there are the relationships among native speakers and the social aspects among the learners. There is a need to raise learners cultural sensitivity about the target language and also to take into account their culture. It's related to pretty much every area of ESL teaching

    You may want to use Google to research your homework assignment, have a conversation with your teacher or class mates.
