'English: One Language, Different Cultures' is an introduction to

communication with members of these societies, especially on correcting
false stereotypes which may cause misunderstandings. The second edition of
this popular textbook has been fully revised and updated throughout. A new
chapter on New Zealand has been added, along with maps, exercises and
suggestions for further reading. This is the essential textbook for
undergraduate and postgraduate students of language, culture and

countries.
