is typically described as a principle or rule to guide decisions andachieve rational outcome(s) (Spolsky, 2005). The term is not normally used todenote what is actually done, this is normally referred to as either procedure or protocol. Whereas a policy will contain the ‘what’ and the’why’, procedures or protocols contain the ‘what’, the ‘how’, the ‘where’, and the ‘when’. A
can be considered as a “Statement of Intent” or a “Commitment”. For that reason atleast, we can be held accountable for our “Policy”. The term may apply togovernment, private sector organizations and groups, and individuals. Policydiffers from rules or law. While law can compel or prohibit behaviors (e.g. a lawrequiring the payment of taxes on income), policy merely guides actions towardthose that are most likely to achieve a desired outcome.There are many kinds of policy in society. One of them is language policy.Language Policy is highly relevant to scholars, students, specialists and policy-makers working in the fields of applied linguistics, language policy,sociolinguistics, and language teaching and learning (E. Shohamy; K. King:2009). Moreover, Spolsky (2005, available on internet) stated that:
Language policy includes not just the regular patterns of choice, but also beliefs about choices and the values of varieties and of variants, and also, mostsaliently, the efforts made by some to change the choices and beliefs of others.”In this paper, the writers would like to present about the importance andthe influencing language policies at classroom level and school level includesinfluencing family, community, legislation, and national spirit to benefit Englishlearners.
2. POLICY AT THE CLASSROOM LEVEL
In the classroom, the teacher of the classroom should make some classroomrules to create an educational and social climate that makes school a place whereall students can succeed. The language policies are included in the implementationof classroom rules. Its existence is very important, because when students fail tolearn, schools and teachers have failed. Teachers are best able to foster dual-language proficiency by carrying out equitable, empowering instruction.
