A Cultural Perspective on Group Work.
Flowerdew, Lynne
ELT Journal, v52 n4 p323-29 1998
Advocates the use of group work for a group of learners from a Chinese cultural background, where, to some extent, Confucian values still prevail. It is argued that group work is an appropriate methodological tool for such learners, given that it is sensitive to the three key Confucian values: cooperation, the concept of "face," and self-effacement.
