The concept of Language Awareness promotes conscious attention to the structure and functions of language as an element of language education. Although this concept is a relatively recent one, it has been very influential and is now widely applied in schools. However, most language Awwareness programmes are based upon contentious theoretical assumptions about language and schooling.

whilst Critical language Awareness accepts the general case which has been made for Language Awareness, it offers an approach based upon critical theories of language and language education.
