Dr. Marjorie Zambrano-Paff, Department of Spanish, presented “Pragmatics: A Fourth ‘P’ in the Teaching of Culture?” at the IUP Spring Methodology Conference on April 29, 2011.
Her presentation built on the 3P’s culture framework of the national foreign language standards. Participants were introduced to “pragmatics” as one of the most challenging aspects of language and cultural learning.
The session elaborated on examples and activities on how we might help our students develop greater cultural insights about the connection between language and culture through pragmatics.
