Developing Intercultural Perspectives on Language Use : Exploring Pragmatics and Culture in Foreign Language Learning, Paperback / softback Book

Developing Intercultural Perspectives on Language Use : Exploring Pragmatics and Culture in Foreign Language Learning Paperback / softback

Part of the Languages for Intercultural Communication and Education series

Paperback / softback

Description

Many language teachers recognise the importance of integrating intercultural learning into language learning, but how this can be best achieved is not always apparent.

This is particularly the case in foreign language learning contexts where teachers are working with a prescribed textbook and opportunities to use the language outside the classroom are limited.

This book argues that teachers can work creatively with conventional resources and utilise classroom experiences in order to help learners interpret aspects of communication in insightful ways and develop awareness of the influence of cultural assumptions and values on language use.

The book provides extensive analysis of a range of classroom interactions to demonstrate how teachers and learners can work together to construct opportunities for intercultural learning through reflection on pragmatics.
