A non-credit course on American language and culture will be offered for visiting international scholars from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays. The course, which scholars may join at any time during the year, will meet in 144 Bevier Hall. Class activities emphasize discussion. Scholars are encouraged to use English in speaking and reading aloud in class. Topics are determined by the participants, but usually include holidays and customs, political and social organization, historical events and figures, current affairs, sports and entertainment, underlying values and ways to improve English. Class trips, holiday parties and outside lectures are arranged. In addition, scholars have the opportunity to give short talks on their fields of research. Language problems are treated as they arise, and special attention is given to English academic and scientific vocabulary. More information is available from the Division of English as an International Language, 333-1506, or the instructor, Mary S. Temperley, professor of English as an international language, 244-1451.
