The teaching and learning of languages need not necessarily be focused entirely on the acquisition of language skills. We also need to inculcate values- moral, spiritual, human, ethical, etc. in our teaching and learning activities. Language education emphasizes the four general skills of reading, speaking, listening and writing. Universal values involving special people, the environment, social issues, health, science and technology may easily be incorporated into the curriculum. The paper demonstrates how this may be done while acquiring language skills simultaneously.
