An Annotated Bibliography of Literature Concerning the Role of Culture in Foreign Language.
Barnes, Sharon S.
An annotated bibliography of materials concerning the role of culture in foreign language learning focuses on the complexity and the importance of cultural awareness and on its integration into the foreign language curriculum. The first group of citations concerns the value of culture in the communication process and includes materials on sociological issues, attitudes toward foreign cultures, and attitudes toward and expectations of foreign languages. The second group of citations addresses issues in the integration of culture into classroom activities, including methodological concerns, textbooks and testing, and teaching strategies. Conclusions derived from the survey of the literature and recommendations for further research, curriculum development, and classroom techniques are also presented. (MSE)
