Culture in the English for Biology Curriculum
Jebahi, Khaled
Curriculum and Teaching, v29 n1 p71-80 2014
This paper investigates the place of culture in the Tunisian English for the biology curriculum. To this end, the English language materials used were evaluated. The findings suggested that the materials used do not answer students' needs with respect to exponents of communicative functions, appropriate intonation patterns, norms of politeness, conventions governing interpersonal relationships and social interactions, and rhetorical conventions in different spoken and written genres.
