The Language Centre offers modules in British Cultural studies, Intercultural Communication, Communicating across Cultures and, in conjunction with Keele's Global Education Team, short on-site language and culture programmes for overseas partner universities.
The Language Centre offers two modules to help prepare Keele students for their Study Abroad/Exchange/Erasmus programme.
The modules provide an introduction to the basic principles and issues related to communication within and across different cultural contexts. Lectures and seminars focus on the perception of culture and our ability to understand and function in an unfamiliar environment. The overall aim is to equip students with the framework to analyse and recognise the value of their overseas experience. By the end of the semester, study abroad students regardless of their specific destination, will be better equipped to function effectively in a different culture.
