Document(s) associé(s)Version PDF originale
The aims of teaching a foreign language is for communication and bringing nations and cultures closer to each other. This is needed for globalism and reducing bias and prejudice, solving religious and racial differences. It is also needed for academic purposes as well as commercial, political and cultural relations. Globalism is inevitable, changes take place. History has repeatedly proven that changes which have taken place by force have not last long while lots of changes which took place in all countries by translation, literature and friendly contacts are like carving on stone! Language is the most powerful weapon! Suggestions for revision and updating university curricula and texts for preparing better language teachers with cultural understanding will be given in this paper.
