LACA - Language and Culture Acquisition (22 August - 20 September 2002)
This course aims to prepare people to become effective communicators in a second language and culture. We do not teach any specific language, but rather give people tools to learn any language and culture. The course is as much about learning to learn experientially and to interact with other people as it is about learning specific facts. The aim is that people leave this course confident that if they have access to a community of speakers of another language, they can learn it, whether or not there is a formal language school. To this end we aim to teach people how to organize and manage their own learning and to learn from experience. Many adults learning another language are daunted by the new sounds they encounter. The intensive phonetics training offered in this course is intended to give students confidence that they will be able to recognize, pronounce and transcribe the new sounds they will hear in learning another language. We believe that effective cross-cultural communication is built on good interpersonal communication skills, and that self-awareness is the first step toward reaching this end.
