Cities, Cultures and Peoples--
Don't we say English offers us a window to the world? Learning English, indeed, is not just learning the language, but also the cultures that get expressed, described and, most importantly, 'lived' in this language.
As a course for automatic learning, this course tries to interest you with a variety of city cultures all over the world, with a focus on its urbanism (e.g. architecture), its foods and people. You will also be drawn into deeper thinking with issues of race, gender and urban/capitalist developments.
We will get concrete examples of these cities with the help of a variety of documentaries.
So--let's use our imagination to travel to different places in the world, learning English along the way!!!
