What is the course about?

GDAR1086 is designed to help students develop an interlingual as well as intercultural awareness and competence in such communication. It trains students to identify and understand the differences and similarities between English and Chinese on linguistic and cultural levels. It deals with how language and cultural elements carry meaning across language-cultures, and how students may broaden their vision of the world of linguistic and cultural diversity from a contrastive perspective. Upon completing the course, students will be equipped with a general knowledge about English and Chinese in contrast and an overall readiness to appreciate linguistic and cultural diversity for better communication with other people.
