Implementing Task Based Methodology to Develop Cultural Awareness at a Language Institute in Santiago de Cali.
Trabajo de grado - Pregrado
This research deals with the concept of culture as an inherent part of language and how it can be developed in the language classroom in order to raise awareness of cultural aspects underlying language. The results here presented are the product of a work done with a group of kids at Centro Cultural Colombo Americano in Santiago de Cali during the period September 2007 - May 2008 by one of the graduate candidates from the Universidad del Valle¿s Foreign Languages Program. The purpose of the course was to adapt the core units proposed by the textbook to a series of tasks that would help learners develop both language skills and cultural understanding. Such outcomes are shared in this document for upcoming research.
