Intercultural Competence in English
  This course offers students the opportunity to improve their language skills in the realm of intercultural communication. Following an introduction to code switching, we will have a look at the theoretical frameworks used to analyze cultures. Using these concepts as a touchstone, we will examine how cultural norms and traditions affect the language we use. Further practical applications of intercultural competency in English will be examined via real-life case studies where students will have the chance to refine their spoken and written English. Students will be asked to prepare presentations on a culture of their choice and chair the ensuing discussion. Language feedback will allow students to see how they are progressing throughout the course. Grammar practice will take place online. As well as the assessed presentation, there will be a final written exam.
