We just have a few more units to cover, and then it'll be time for our presentations. Once you get your outline back, start preparing your slide presentations.
Language as a Barrier to Communication:
In today's lesson, we looked at examples at how language is center to identity since it allows a group of people to share experiences. We then listened to samples of changes to the English language from the 8th century to the 20th century. Languages are dynamic and are always changing.
We also looked at how translation affects intercultural communication. In class, we had time to analyze challenges with vocabulary and idiomatic equivalence. In next week's lesson, we'll finished up with grammatical-syntactical, experiential and conceptual equivalence. You can review the lecture with the slide presentation: Language as a Barrier
