In this interactive workshop, we will first discuss through an activity what linguistic politeness is and why it is important for effective intercultural communication in a second language. Instruction on these topics can be complicated for an international language (e.g., English) when we consider how diversified it has become in today’s globalization. Through collaborative analysis of authentic samples of intercultural interactions, we will explore possible ways to teach and learn pragmatics with translingual hybridity in mind.
