Teaching Culture to English Learners: Commonwealth Studies as a Content-based EFL Course

    Derrick Nault

The following paper offers a Canadian educator's reflections on teaching a content-based culture course in Commonwealth Studies to university-level Korean EFL learners. Describing the course's rationale, teaching methods, materials, and student assessment methods, along with student reactions to the course, the paper suggests Commonwealth Studies can serve as a useful framework by which to educate Korean students-and possibly other English learners in Asia-on the international and cultural dimensions of the English language, improve their English skills, and make them more effective cross-cultural communicators.
