Product description

Intercultural Language Activities offers practical teaching ideas which encourage learners to reflect on their own language and culture, as well as that of others.

Topics covered in the fourteen chapters include childhood, food, sport, icons, politics and body language. The book also helps learners mediate in situations of cultural misunderstanding and start web-based intercultural exchanges. It examines interview techniques, how people present themselves, and ways to interpret cultural symbols and characteristics, such as those found in postcards, advertisements and online newspapers. In engaging with these topics, learners become intercultural explorers and raise their level of communicative competence.

This is an invaluable resource for any teacher who wishes to combine language learning with cultural exploration. In addition, the accompanying CD-ROM provides print-friendly photocopiable worksheets and reading texts which can be put to immediate use.

Key features

  • Enables teachers to combine interculturalism with language learning.
  • Contains a wide range of easily accessible, low resource activities which can be used in any order.
  • Step-by-step instructions make the book clear and easy to use in class with minimal preparation.
