Teaching and learning culture of a second language
This paper was presented at the Distance Education and Teacher's Training in Africa (DETA) 2007 Conference, Makerere University, Kampala, Uganda. The paper concerns with the contribution and integration of culture in the second or foreign language education. More specifically, some consideration will be given to the why and how to teach culture. Teaching a foreign language is not the same as giving a lecture on syntactic structures or learning new vocabulary and expressions, but mainly integrates, or should integrate, some cultural elements, which are matted with the target language itself.
