description & set texts
Culture with lower case letter 'c' This course aims to examine how some aspects of lower case letter ’culture’( behaviour culture, e.g. courtship practices, eating habits, socializing etc.) appear in the target language countries as opposed to Hungary. The course aims to explore these aspects through reading and discussing relevant texts and viewing videos and excerpts from feature films. Students will be required to research an area and deliver a presentation on their findings. The course will therefore offer ample opportunity for integrated skills work, listening, reading, speaking and writing.
