About this Unit
This unit aims to develop the students' communicative competence in intercultural contexts, raise their awareness of issues in language use and socio-cultural dimensions, and equip them with the knowledge and skills necessary for intercultural communication. It also prepares students to critically analyse linguistic and cultural differences around them, appreciate linguistic and cultural diversity, and integrate the unit contents into their future careers (e.g. further studies or employment). It highlights the impact of intercultural communication in a range of real-life sectors, such as second language teaching and learning, translation and interpreting services, international business, tourism, community services, and organisational communication.
