Communicating in Asian Contexts (ASNS6906)
UNIT OF STUDY
This unit takes a cross-cultural approach to analysing the interactions of speakers of Asian languages and other language backgrounds, both Asian and non-Asian. Theoretical approaches are introduced through case studies, focusing on cultural key words, language systems and interaction styles. Students will reflect on their own cultures, languages and interaction styles, and undertake cross-cultural research, using primary and secondary sources. This is not a language unit; no knowledge of Asian languages is assumed.
