L161 starts today!

The first presentation of the brand new new module L161 Exploring Languages and Cultures begins today. Over 1000 students have already started to post some fascinating discussions on the module forum.

Book 1: Language and culture

This week the main discussion will focus on accent and identity:

  • Do you think your accent in English is an integral part of your identity?
  • Has it changed at all in the course of your life?
  • Do you sometimes modify it, depending on the circumstances? If so, when and why?
  • Can you remember any occasions where your accent has worked to your advantage or disadvantage?

A nice starter to get those ideas bubbling!
