Cognitive Concepts and Cross-Cultural Awareness.
Jokhadze, Lali
This paper discusses the establishment of a connection between cognitive concepts and knowledge acquired through English-as-a-Second-Language teaching and learning. Modern thinking focuses on effective application of common global knowledge and language skills appropriate for culturally diverse students. The article suggests that a cognitive conceptual approach to language learning gives students the responsibility to explore the both language and themselves, as well as their surroundings in order to work cooperatively with peers and teachers. Teaching culture-specific differences may have far-reaching consequences, because it can lead to self-aware, environmentally-aware relationships which may increase students' awareness of intellectual issues. Successful intellectual communication becomes increasingly important as it improves on access to high quality international experiences. (SM)
