What comes to mind when you think of British culture? Probably quite differing traditional stereotypes. On the one hand, you might think of James Bond ordering a sophisticated Martini or of stylish celebs attending Wimbledon. While on the other, you might think of the eccentric capers of Mr. Bean. The UK is a multi-nation, multi-ethnic land of diversity and contrast. And yet you’ll find it hard to meet a Brit who doesn’t love a good cup of tea with a nice chocolate biscuit.
In this module students will practise English Language skills in the context of British Culture. It covers a great range of topics, to include: British History, Politics, Arts, Music, Humour, the Monarchy, Sports, Employment, Leisure activities, Social Customs and life in Britain in general.
- Gain greater awareness of contemporary issues and culture in Britain
- Increase confidence in understanding, socialising and working with British people
