EDUC 5419 - Language and Culture

North Terrace Campus - Semester 2 - 2015

The focus of this course is on how language and culture are inter-connected. The course explores language development as a socio-cultural activity and its implications for TESOL pedagogy. Students will be encouraged to critically analyse language in context and how differences can lead to cross-cultural misunderstanding. The students will be expected to explore current debates in language and culture and examine the issues which arise for the TESOL teacher.
