American culture is just like a big melting pot of different cultures.Create a new dialogue according to the situation given below.设计思路l 通过对话的学习和讨论,学生对文化交流有了进一步的认识。通过编写对话,梳理有关文化交流的一些知识,把现实生活中的场景转化为语言情景。参考教法l 把班级学生分成若干小组,确定要讨论的文化交流事例,编写英文对话;l 教师根据学生编写对话的情况,选择几组表现突出的学生,在班级上展示,锻炼学生,并提高学生的积极性,活跃课堂气氛。对话翻译文化差异A:我是唐明,很高兴见到你!B:幸会!我是乔。A:听说你来自英国,在这里学习汉语吗?B:是的,这是我来中国的第一年。A:你现在习惯在中国的生活吗?有时候对于西方的学生而言,有些艰难。B:太对了!我在英格兰长大,第一次出国留学,需要一些时间来习惯这里的文化。A:对你来说,在这里最大的困难是什么?B:我想应该是习俗吧。缺乏对中国风俗习惯的了解,给我带来了很多麻烦。A:比如呢?B:西方文化中,即使是好朋友或者父母,一点点帮助都要说谢谢,但是中国不同,例如帮朋友开门之类的小事,他们是不需要说感谢之类的话。A:的确如此,在中国无需说感谢!B:有时很担心由于习俗差异对中国的同学们不够礼貌。A:完全理解!你最好交几个中国朋友,向他们学习。B:嗯,好主意。Text设计思路l 由对话导入了文化差异的话题,在课文中进一步的讨论文化差异,了解深层次的一些文化现象,有助于学生把握语言应用的环境。l 随着社会经济的发展,文化交流日益频繁,为更好的进行国际交流,现代学生有必要了解一些西方国家的文化现象。参考教法l 导入问题:What is Cultural Exchange? Can you give some examples in our life?What can we learn from cultural exchange?Language Points in the Text1. inevitable a.① certain to happen and impossible to avoide.g. It's inevitable that doctors will make the occasional mistake.医生也会偶尔犯错误,这是不可避免的。Disease was an inevitable consequence of poor living conditions.疾病是恶劣的生活条件所带来的必然结果。② a situation that is certain to happen:e.g.One day the inevitable happened and I got a speeding ticket.一天一件不可避免的事情发生了,我得到一张罚单。2. clash n.① a short fight between two armies or groups:violent clashes between police and demonstrators 警察与示威者之间的暴力冲突②an argument between two people or groups:e.g. The plans put oil companies in a head-on clash with environmentalists.这些计划使得石油公司与环保主义者之间发生了正面的冲突。3. enrich v. to improve the quality of something, especially by adding things to ite.g. Add fertilizer to enrich the soil. 施肥使土壤肥沃。Education can greatly enrich your life. 教育可以极大的丰富你的生活。4. digest v.① to change food that you have just eaten into substances that your body can use:e.g. One or two years old babies can digest a wide range of food easily.一两岁大的婴儿能够很容易消化各种各样的食物。② to understand new information:e.g. I struggled to digest the news. 我努力去理解这个新闻。5. eliminate v.① to completely get rid of something that is unnecessary or unwanted:e.g. Do you know how to eliminate the pouch? 你知道如何消除眼袋吗?Fatty foods should be eliminated from the diet. 高脂肪的食物应该从饮食中去除。② to defeat a team or person in a competition:e.g. Our team was eliminated in the first round.我们的队伍在第一轮就被淘汰了。6. novelty n. the quality of being new, unusual, and interesting:e.g. Many toys have no attraction beyond their novelty value.许多玩具除了新奇性,无任何吸引力。It was fun for a while, but the novelty wore off.它会有趣一段时间,但新鲜感会渐渐消失。7. imitation n. copy someone else's actionse.g. Many people think that children learn language by imitation.很多人认为儿童是通过模仿学习语言的。8. originality n. something completely new and different e.g. I was impressed by the originality of the plan.这个计划的创意给我留下了深刻印象。Her earlier work shows a lot of originality.她早期的作品展示了很多创意。A lot of his designs lack originality.他的很多设计缺乏创意。课文翻译文化差异现代化的交通与传播手段使世界变得越来越小,整个国际社会好似一个巨大的地球村。有着不同文化背景的村民们在文化交流和文化冲撞中和睦相处。当代社会的任何一个民族,其先进文化从来都不是孤立的,而是与其他民族的文化进行广泛交流的产物。当然,任何一个民族的文化,其根基与主流必须具有这个民族的鲜明特征。文化交流不是让外国文化吞没自己的文化,而是为了丰富和充实本民族的文化。通过文化交流,不同的文化可以相互学习,相互影响。在文化领域里,相互影响是一种非常复杂的现象。因此,吸取外国文化是一个入口、咀嚼和消化的过程。我们应该采取去伪存真、去粗取精、多出优进、抵御腐蚀的原则。我认为各种文化的不同特点和风格不会因此而消失,相反,不同的文化可以取长补短,互为补充。我们在吸取外国文化优秀成果的同时,不能满足于一味模仿的做法。沉溺于简单的模仿会使自己失去创作力,无法达到新的艺术高度,无法向世界推出自己的优秀作品。新意是现代风格与传统风格的结合,是外国特色与本民族特色的结合,是艺术性与教育性的结合。Language PracticeTask 1 Read the text again and answer the following questions.1.
