Nagoya JALT:

The Three Keys to Unlocking Culture: Perception, Perception, Perception!

Date: Sunday, May 27th, 2001 Time: 1:30 PM - 4:00 PM

Speaker: Ray Donahue, Nagoya Gakuin University

Increasingly, second language educators must unlock the mysteries of culture for their charges. Cultures differ according to their preferred styles or strategies of communication. As focus on communicative competence and study abroad rise, we are increasingly placed in the role of an interpreter of culture--how successfully depends largely on our own perception. This workshop aims to sharpen perception by exploring various perceptual puzzles about Japan and critically analyzing the contrastive rhetoric between Japanese and English.
