This webinar, Cross-Cultural Communication Strategies in the English Language Classroom, will focus on ways English teachers can raise cultural and linguistic awareness so that students will become more successful English speaking, global citizens. Since our global culture started to take root, English has taken center stage in developing our abilities to communicate across cultures and borders. English is fast becoming the shared language of our global community whether it be in business, economics, education or even social media. Given this trend, and the increased demand for English language learning courses, English teachers the world over are forced to retool their language content and delivery in order to better prepare learners for many environments that often include cross-cultural interactions. This webinar will discuss some of the challenges our different cultural and linguistic backgrounds present in spite of a shared language.
