Language, Culture and Communication. Englisch ab B2.2 (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Paul Martin Lauer

wöchentlich | Mittwoch | 10:15 - 13:45 | 06.04.2020 - 10.07.2020 | C 6.316

Inhalt: Dieses Semester wird die Veranstaltung als E-Learning Format angeboten, d.h. als Mischung aus Einzel- bzw. Gruppenbetreuung und selbstgesteuertem Lernen. In this seminar you will have the opportunity to explore how culture shapes perception and behavior. We will critically examine a theory of intercultural communication to determine its usefulness and limitations before learning how to do qualitative research. The final project involves interviewing international students at the Leuphana and then interpreting their experiences here in Germany. We will also explore issues such as the impact of tourism on local communities or hidden bias and unconscious discrimination. A secondary goal of the course is to give you an opportunity to improve your spoken and written language skills.
