Teaching discourse and pragmatics a.k.a. What on earth did he mean? - Chia Suan Chong
We spend a lot of classroom time focusing on grammar and vocabulary but how often do we focus of discourse and pragmatics? What exactly are discourse and pragmatics and why should they be important to our students? In this webinar, Chia will explore the ways we don't often say what we really mean, and how culture can impact on what we choose to say, or not say. Not only will this exploration help us understand how language is used in communication but it will also open our eyes to the fascinating mechanics of communicating in context.
