Language and Culture: Recommendations

 

 

 

 

Here are some recommendations for a discussion about language and culture. They can serve as inspiration for your classes. 

 

We start with a TED Talk titled Language is Culture: https://www.ted.com/talks/andrew_muchiri_language_is_culture

 

Tales is a podcast in English that narrates the original versions of classic children’s tales:

Traditional fairy tales aren’t exactly suitable for kids. Women vomit spiders. Children get eaten. There’s even murder! Every Wednesday, we take you through the twists and turns of the dark origins of your favorite pieces of folklore.

An interesting article about the origin of O.K.: https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/how-word-ok-was-invented-175-years-ago-180953258/

 

In the next class, we will discuss how tales and legends feed into our idea of culture. Here are some American folktales: https://www.americanfolklore.net/ss.html

 

Have you heard about any of these? What are some examples in Spain?
