Kulturformidlingen i Fremmedsprogsundervisningen: 4 Artikler (The Emphasis on Culture in Foreign Language Instruction: 4 Articles). ROLIG-papir 45.
The four articles in this issue of a series of working papers focus on the promotion of culture in foreign language instruction. The first article, "The Promotion of Culture in Denmark, Norway, and Sweden," looks at language instruction in French, English, and German in the school systems of these countries since the 1950s, and how the teaching of culture today is related to each of these countries' social histories. The second article, "The Promotion of Culture in Beginning Foreign Language Books: Newer Tendencies," discusses how textbooks and teaching materials have shifted, since the 1950s, to a cultural orientation rather than focusing just on grammar, dialogues, idioms, anecdotes, etc. The third article, "Promoting Culture, Learning Culture, and Teaching Culture," attempts to provide a clearer notion of the definition of "kulturformidlingen," the promotion or emphasis of culture, in relation to the learning and teaching of culture. The last article, "Foreign Language and Global Awareness," focuses on the role of foreign languages in the development of global awareness. (VWL)
