Cultural Values: The Interpretation of Discourse.
Brown, Gillian
ELT Journal, v44 n1 p11-17 Jan 1990
Instead of teaching as many facts as possible about the cultural background of the target language, second language learners should be taught explicit strategies for making inferences from the language. This enables learners to gradually construct their cultural background knowledge in the same way that native speakers construct their cultural knowledge. (Author/CB)
