Spanish Pragmatics for Teachers

This course connects foreign language pedagogy to speech act theory, politeness theory, and pragmatic variation within the Spanish-speaking world. It is a close study of routinized language behaviors which enables teachers to raise awareness of cultural cues that are necessary to interpret conversations accurately. The course explores innovative, research-based approaches for teaching pragmatics in the foreign language classroom so that learners can avoid cross-cultural misunderstandings and better interpret texts in Spanish.
