It’s not just about the language its about the place and the people.
Cultural conditions and social conventions (rules of politeness, the ways different groups speak to each other differ.. between generations, sexes, classes and social groups), socio-linguistics clearly affect all language communication between representatives of different cultures, even though learners may be unaware.
Other cultural knowledge concerning to day-to-day living (organization of the day, mealtimes, means of transport, communication and information), is essential for the management of language skills in a foreign language.
As well as knowledge of the shared values and beliefs held by social groups in other countries and regions, such as religious beliefs, taboos, assumed common history are essential to intercultural communication. These multiple areas of knowledge vary from individual to individual. They may be culture-specific, but nevertheless are interwoven into all our courses here at Lengua y Culura MX.
To ensure this important aspect of learning is part of our courses, we employ native teachers.
