Stepping Out Into Cross Cultural Interactions
Lulu Enterprises Incorporated, 2006 - 209 pages
Stepping Out is an English language textbook for intermediate learners. Specifically, it is designed for Japanese students at the university level who are learning English. The text is unique in that it is often written in the second person, putting students into a series of guided conversations. Students are asked to give their own responses to various speakers in a wide variety of intercultural contexts. Students can then begin to develop their real life, interactive communicative skills. This text avoids many of the pitfalls of typical conversation texbooks with sterile conversations that do not involve the studentE s identity or aims, and have no relevance to Japanese culture, values, or common ideas. Stepping Out is also the only English language textbook that allows teachers to have a written record of what their students have said, and to give feedback so that students can learn from their own mistakes.
