ESL:Communicating in anyEducational Environment
Language and culture are two multidimensional and constantly changing phenomena that are integrally connected to everything that happens in the world. As any language is culturally conditioned, any culture is linguistically defined. The main goal of this course is to examine the relationship between language and culture, their influence on each other as well as their effect on community, identity, beliefs, and values. Participants will develop skills to decrease misunderstandings, send clear messages, receive and interpret messages accurately and promote effective communication as it pertains to ESL classrooms.
