Intercultural Pragmatics and Language Teaching, May 10th, 08:30 hrs.

El pasado viernes 10 de mayo tuvimos la presencia de dos expertos, Dra. Joan Cutting y Dr. Mike Orr, de la Universidad de Edimburgo como parte de una visita académica gestionada para el Ministerio de Educación.

En esta oportunidad contamos con la presentación de Joan Cutting, Senior Lecturer de Moray House School of Education del Institute for Education, Teaching and Leadership de la Universidad de Edimburgo, sobre Intercultural Pragmatics and Language Learning.

Pragmatics is the study of spoken language – its actual practice, use, conventions, and how meaning is created in everyday interaction. A key idea in pragmatics is that culture shapes the way language is used, and the way language is used creates culture. Hence, comparisons of speech practices across cultures can be a useful way to study both language and culture.
