X40605 - Global English (online)

English as a first language is spoken by about 370 million people around the globe. But is Australian English the same as, for example, Caribbean English? How does a speaker from the east of Ireland sound? Is it true that no other form of English is as polite as Canadian English? You will find out the answers to these questions and much more in this unique conversation experience. Every monthly lesson features a native speaker from a different country speaking in their native variety of English. We will talk about national stereotypes, why each respective variant is the most beautiful and how certain words and expressions have different meanings. This semester you will meet teachers from Australia, Scotland, Ireland, USA, Canada, Hong Kong, Trinidad and Tobago and of course England. To take part in Global English you do not even have to leave your sofa! All you need is a computer and a working internet connection. Eine Anmeldung ist erforderlich, damit wir Ihnen den Zugangslink zusenden können.
