Abstract:

This paper focuses on the role of media linguistics and the use of media discourse in (foreign) language education. Based on an example of a specific critical incident in the context of teaching Bulgarian as a foreign language, the study concludes that (foreign) language teaching and learning should go beyond the normative spaces of the “standard” language, and that learners should be exposed to the lexico-grammatical and discourse features of different target language varieties and registers. Thus, they will expand their language repertoire beyond the perimeter of the codified standard norm of public communication, which will allow them to use the language appropriately in diverse social and cultural settings.

Keywords:

media linguistics; communicative competence; methodology of (foreign) language teaching; critical incidents
