Conversational Routines and Forms of Small Talk
corso ID

contenuti del corso
Speaking English in today’s multicultural and ever-growing English-speaking community is becoming increasingly complex. Everyday small talk situations between people of different cultural backgrounds are challenging since responding to “Did you have a good weekend?” or “I love your jacket!” is not so simple. Similarly, describing oneself as being “quite good” at doing something in job interviews is the norm in some cultures while other cultures prefer the use of “very good”, which can lead to misunderstandings. Thus, in this workshop cross-cultural challenges when speaking English will be discussed and participants will be shown how this topic can be approached in the classroom in an interactive and engaging way.
