Description:

Note: This is the second edition of a previously published book.

'English: One Language, Different Cultures' is an introduction to
culturally determined aspects of communicating in British, Australian,
Canadian, New Zealand and American societies. The focus is on effective
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
communication, future English language teachers, as well as translators and
interpreters, who deal with texts originating from various English speaking
countries.
