This action-oriented course makes the most of the short-term study abroad environment by focusing on the situations that students encounter while in Japan. [+]

(Open to students at all proficiency levels)

This action-oriented course makes the most of the short-term study abroad environment by focusing on the situations that students encounter while in Japan. Depending on the level of proficiency, students will either learn basic grammatical structures and vocabulary or reinforce and fully utilize previously studied grammar while expanding vocabulary to accomplish more challenging communicative goals. Interaction with Japanese students is emphasized.In this course, students will learn to use the language to achieve actual communicative goals in Japanese. Examples of the situations that call for the use of various linguistic forms are introducing oneself (e.g., at an international party, to a Japanese family), exchanging useful information on the neighborhood and surrounding towns, getting around & using public transportation, solving communication-related problems, describing cultural artifacts & asking questions, talking about events, inviting someone to outings, talking about customs, manners, cultural differences, one’s hometown, etc. with a Japanese family, and so on.Students with differing degrees of proficiency in Japanese will work toward the achievement of the goals set according to their level, keeping “can-do statements” in mind. Volunteer students whose native language is Japanese are brought in to work with summer program participants for both language support and authentic interaction in Japanese. Students are encouraged to make the most of various resources available on campuses such as a JSL resource center and the Writing Support Center. Final grades will be given based on quizzes, class participation, and homework/assignments. Students’ self-evaluation of the degree to which they... [-]

English as a Lingua Franca: Changing Language Practices

ORGANISER: Department of Modern Languages, University of Helsinki Related Degree Programmes:

Master’s Programme in English Studies Master’s Programme in Linguistic Diversity in the Digital Age

DATES: 8.-24.8.2017 PRICES: 850-1400 EUR CREDITS: 5 ECTS COORDINATOR: Dr Svetlana Vetchinnikova

Target Students

The course is suitable for students at Master’s and Doctoral levels as well as language professionals who have an interest in English studies or applied linguistics.

Synopsis

English has become a global language of intercultural communication and is used worldwide as a contact language between people who do not share a common native language. Non-native speakers of English are increasingly using the language with each other in areas such as academia, business, diplomacy, sport and personal relationships. How does this new sociolinguistic situation develop and how does it affect language practices? Following Mauranen (2012), this course examines the phenomenon of English as a lingua franca (ELF) from three different but interrelated perspectives: cognitive, microsocial and macrosocial. We will start by looking at the linguistic features of ELF and thinking how cognitive properties of multilingual processing can explain them. Moving on to the microsocial perspective, the students will get a chance to observe ELF interaction in the private sphere, paying special attention to misunderstandings and pre-empting them as well as multilingual practices. At the macrosocial level, we will deal with such issues as language ideologies, linguistic imperialism and language ownership. Exploring a very recent concept of ‘translanguaging’, we will discuss the complex and fluid... [-]
