Workshop Description – Which World to Bring to the Classroom?
Covering culture in a foreign language classroom directly affects the teaching of Arabic. In a world where faddish trends are parading as relevant cultural phenomenon, the Teaching of Culture has become very difficult and it must be done with care in order for Arabic L2 students to be deeply and strategically literate in the language and the world. How to make sure the classroom is not a linguistics lab, but a vibrant community where an alive language is taught and learned is the focus of our talk and discussion.
