Description:
A truly daunting challenge for second language learners is to adjust their language use so that it is appropriate for a variety of socio-cultural contexts. How, for example, are learners supposed to address strangers, close friends, or people of higher social status in that culture? Although acquiring culturally-sensitive discourse practices can take learners many years, research has shown that the process can be facilitated through explicit instruction.

This online institute provides practical insights for teachers on how to enhance the learning of linguistic politeness and boost students' awareness of intercultural differences. Participants will have hands-on opportunities to develop activities and materials for the classroom.
