The Co-Existence of French and English in Québec

English

Patrice Bergeron wrote an article for La Presse, a francophone journal, entitled ‘’Le Québec peut aussi parler au monde en Anglais, dit Lisée’’*. This article was published on February 1, 2017, and the following is a summary of Bergeron’s text (http://www.lapresse.ca/actualites/politique/politique-quebecoise/201702/01/01-5065293-le-quebec-peut-aussi-parler-au-monde-en-anglais-dit-lisee.php).

Cultivating Cultural Creativity

English

The article “Sino-English Culture Difference and Teaching in Foreign Language Education” discusses the struggles foreign language instructors face in teaching the accompanying culture of the language they are teaching. These educators have long since ascertained the importance of teaching culture to their students, but the problem remains for how to go about doing this in a way that maximizes comprehension. The solution, this article asserts, lies in the mastery of a skill called ‘cultural creativity’. In order to better illustrate these points, the author uses the specific example of teaching English as a foreign language in China.
