Culture, language and globalization: Challenges for instructors teaching intercultural communication

Extract

← 40 | 41 → Mustafa Z. Altan (Kayseri)

We live in an increasingly complex world. One element of this complexity is the mixing of different cultures, languages and faiths.

Here, I will try to focus how language and culture go hand in hand and how we as professionals of foreign language teaching can help our students to become more aware of different cultures and languages and more appreciate them in order to overcome the ever-increasing complexity of the modern world.

Culture is the beliefs and practices governing the life of a society for which a particular language is the vehicle of expression. Therefore, everyone’s views are dependent on the culture which has influenced them, as well as being described using the language which has been shaped by that culture.

The understanding of a culture and its people can be enhanced by the knowledge of their language. This brings us to an interesting point which argues that even though people are brought up under similar behavioral backgrounds or cultural situations but however speak different languages, their world view may be very different.
