Lin, Li-Li
Online Submission
Cultural conflicts may be derived from using inappropriate language. Appropriate linguistic-pragmatic competence may also be produced by providing various and multicultural backgrounds. Culture and language are linked together naturally, unconsciously, and closely in daily social lives. Culture affects language and language affects culture through daily behavior and conversation. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the relationship between language and culture in order to develop students' cultural awareness and to prepare teachers to teach foreign language effectively though cultural cognition in diverse classrooms.
