Gunma JALT:

Integrating Intercultural Communication in the University Language Classroom

Date: Sunday, January 21st, 2018 Time: 2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Speaker: Tomoko Yoshida

Culture influences the way we think and behave; much of what we think of as "common sense" is governed by culture. As a result, to communicate effectively in a foreign language we must understand the target culture. Unfortunately, most universities offer instruction on foreign language and culture in separate classrooms. In this two-hour workshop, the author will begin by introducing a theoretical framework for planning a content-based language class on intercultural communication. Participants will then explore and experience numerous experiential learning activities that can be used in their own classrooms.
