New Perspectives on Pragmatic Instruction: Moving Beyond Monolingual Norms
Date: Sunday, September 19th, 2010 Time: 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Speaker: Carol Rinnert (Hiroshima City University)
In this multicultural world, what is appropriate language in various situations? This presentation will argue that L2 learners should not be aiming to acquire monolingual L1 speakersí pragmatic norms. Rather, all participants in interaction, regardless of the language they are using (L1 or L2), need to become multicompetent language users or "intercultural speakers".
