The future of global English-coping with culture
There is a widely held view that one of the consequences of the rise of English as a world
language is global intelligibility. However, at the level of everyday communication, cultural
differences between the countries that use English often present a barrier to understanding.
The talk illustrates some of the conversational cross-purposes that have taken place, and
discusses the kind of cultural awareness all English speakers need to have when they
interact with others on a global scale.
Who is this for?
All English Language teachers and practitioners - EFL, ESOL, EAL - from newly qualified to experienced.
