Foster. “Our colleagues upstairs will teach them to love it.”(Brave New World,1,12).Love is often considered unique to each of us, an expression of our personalities and will.To teach us to love something is to take out of life its spontaneity and uniqueness. When "teaching"the infants how and what to love, they are lose their individuality and humanity. The world State distorts the idea of love to their contribution to the society.The author also tends to use scientific terms to be more specific throughout the narrative.This is probably due to the fact that they explain many of the scientific processes .The language used in the book like in a few of the dystopias a form of oppression. In Brave New World the humans are supposed to act the same, and if not they are considered inhumane.
As Keller highlights: “the early intersection of colonial medicine with religious mission work demonstrates how such conversion efforts sought to seduce colonized populations by presenting biomedicine as a superior form of knowledge about body and nature” (Keller, 2006). Bivins in Coming ‘Home’to (post) Colonial Medicine: Treating Tropical Bodies in Post-War Britain, states that: “examining colonial practice has revealed a broader range of historical actors, including missionaries and indigenous healers, leaders, communities and patients” (Bivins, 2013) . Before the arrival of the colonialists, the colonized had ways of handling their illnesses and these ways worked for them. For example, in the Rwandan context as of today a person who has Hepatitis is sometimes advised by the “educated medical doctors” to seek the help of traditional
Metaphors were used to refer to immigrants (Anna, 1999),and to indicate social change in society (Amouzadeh and Tavangar, 2004). Metaphors were also used in various fields such as in American presidential speeches, press reporting, financial reporting and religious discourse (Charteris – Black, 2004). In the field of education, metaphors dealing with teaching, learning and language were investigated (Cortazzi and Jin,1999; Littlemore and Koester, 2008). In relation to the other kinds of figurative language, such as irony and hyperbole, metaphor becomes problems in language teaching compared with the other kinds of figurative language (Littlemore and Low, 2006). If metaphor becomes one of the everyday aspects of communication, language learners should be able to comprehend and to produce it.
In Communicating, Negotiating, and Resolving Conflicts Across Cultures (Thomas and Inkson, 2009) we can learn some valuable lessons to become a great negotiator. As a negotiator in a cross-cultural environment you have to go beyond your own culture and this is what the authors of this article are making clear. In this paper I will discuss and reflect on several aspects of cross-cultural communication in this article. As I previously majored in (Latin and Greek) linguistics and literature and after that in business communication I will also apply a linguistic approach on communication. The authors of this article are using several cases to demonstrate that communication failures that led to the breakdown of relationships all have cultural origins.
As suggested by Jones et al. (2016), gender stereotypes create a sense of estrangement from society through spiteful actions and rejection from peers and adults alike. Exposure to media (For example, television programmes, magazines and film), other children, family members and school staff aids children in their formation of identity (MacNaughton, 2000, p. 20). This in turn, can affect how curriculum experiences are presented in the classroom. Therefore, it is imperative for educators to understand that gender inequality, due to portrayed stereotypes, can be detrimental to a child’s developing identity (National Union of Teachers, 2013).

Permanent problem; How can we make the situation better of intercultural communication in a globalizing world When communicating with a foreigner, have you ever felt stressful because of misunderstanding of each other? I assume that most of you have experienced this situation. In addition, this is one of the considerable issue in this 21st century. This issue is called the intercultural communication, that is analyzed by Laray B. Barna and written in to a document. She mainly wrote about the 6 stumbling blocks that explain the issue of other cultures communicating, how can we overcome with this circumstance, and the efficient way to communicate with foreigners.
We design a dual decomposition inference algorithm to perform joint decoding over the combined alignment and NER output space. This method give ups significant improvements in both NER and word alignment over state-of-the-art monolingual baselines. Their entity tags might not agree due to inconsistency in annotation standards. Mark Hirschkorn David Geelan 2010 Bridging the Research-Practice Gap: Research Translation and/or Research Transformation The issue of the ‘research-practice gap’ – the problematic relationship between research in education and educational practice – is one that has been widely reported in the literature. This critical literature review explores some of the causes and features of the gap, and suggests some possible approaches for addressing it This is essentially a top-down model in which researchers and the knowledge they produce govern the content and practice of teacher preparation.
Khadija Lachqnide TEFL 29/11/2016 Mid-term Is teaching Western cultures in English Language Teaching useful or harmful to English learners? English language teaching has been always viewed, at the international level, as linked to the teaching of either British or American culture. In many countries throughout the world, English learning is regarded as inseparable from learning these cultures. However, this has created an intense debate among speakers of other languages including teachers. On the one hand, some people think that studying cultures of the English-speaking countries like Britain enriches the students?
