Divergent characteristics of subjects require different strategies of teaching and learning. Learning skill subjects such as listening, speaking, reading, and writing requires the learners to do more practical activities because the objective is to acquire language ability, whereas that of content subjects like Linguistics, Pragmatics, and Discourse Analysis demands that students do the activity of reading and understanding texts more because the goal is to get knowledge and understanding of the concepts. In so far as the students need both language ability and conceptual knowledge, teachers should design and implement comprehensive strategies by which students obtain not only knowledge about the concepts but also skill or ability in using the target language. This paper tries to describe and discuss such a strategy by which both targets are achieved.
