Unite! TRAIN THE EARS! Different accents and intercultural aspects

More than a cooperation project between seven universities, Unite! is - above all - a fascinating intercultural adventure. With this first session of workshops within TF7, you will be offered the opportunity to explore some key aspects of interculturality. By the end of this cycle of workshops, you will have examined the basics of intercultural management and increased your listening skills in English!

Time: Thu 2021-03-25 14.00

Participating: Alice Henderson, Associate Professor, University Grenoble Alpes

Do you often work with people from different countries, languages and cultures? How could you improve your ability to decipher English spoken with an accent, whether native or non-native?

In this webinar-workshop, you'll work through a series of exercises, to start improving your ability to decipher accented English. Exercises are combined with group discussions and a bit of theory, in an enjoyable, interactive format.

Participation is welcome from ALL personnel, whether in the administration or the tutoring departments of your university. It is recommended that you sign up for all 3 workshops (as a priority participant) but it is also possible to attend 1 or 2 sessions, if you so wish.

To register, please email and write Unite! as the subject, in addition to that, add what workshop you want to sign up for.
