Mon, 04/28/2014 - 4:30pm
Room 115, Seerley Hall
Lynda Yates, Macquarie University, will address issues faced by adult second language learners as they seek to master not only the language but also the professional and community cultures’ underlying expectations about how they should talk at work. Recent research into the demands of three professions--childcare, teaching and medicine--will be considered. Sponsored by the TESOL Club, the Anthropology Club (NISG) and the Department of Languages & Literatures.
