ANU Language Teaching Forum
Wednesday 17 September 2014, 4.15 – 5.15 pm
Al-Falasi Theatre, CAIS, Building 127, Ellery Crescent, ANU
This presentation will explore the nature of intercultural language teaching and learning as a way of understanding the practice of language education. It will examine some of the core assumptions that lie behind adopting an intercultural perspective in language teaching and learning and discuss how these influence the practice of language teaching. The presentation argues that intercultural language teaching and learning involves a rethinking of the nature of language, culture and learning as they apply in languages education.
The talk will be followed by drinks and dinner at a nearby restaurant. All welcome.
