Academic Paper

Title: Culture and language learning: teaching, research and scholarship
Author: Michael Byram
Institution: Durham University
Linguistic Field: Language Acquisition; Applied Linguistics
Abstract: This review of work on the cultural dimension of language teaching updates one from 1986 and shows that there has been a considerable growth in interest since then. The focus has been largely on the elaboration of conceptual models and theories and the development of teaching and training approaches; much less effort has been devoted to empirical research investigating the impact of such developments and building up a body of knowledge.
