   Learning English through its cultural expressions

 Este es un resumen de nuestro curso:

Language is a means of expression.We express our feelings, emotions, thoughts, needs, desires etc. in words, symbols and gesture which is considered as language. 

Language can be defined as verbal, physical, biologically innate, and a basic form of communication. Culture is the characteristics of a particular group of people, defined by everything from language, religion, cuisine, social habits, music and arts. 

Thus culture finds its expression in language; so, learning a new language without familiarity with its culture remains incomplete. An important question arises here, is it necessary to learn about the culture of the target language to acquire English as a foreign or second language?

From: THE ROLE OF CULTURE IN TEACHING AND LEARNING OF ENGLISH AS A FOREIGN LANGUAGE, by Rahim Uddin Choudhury Lecturer, Department of English Jazan University, Kingdom of Saudi Arabiaby
