Transcript of UTK-ENSEIRB MATMECA
In order to understand others, we have to understand
what they remember from the past,
what they imagine and project onto the future,
and how they position themselves in the present.
And we have to understand the same thing about ourselves.
(Kramsch, 2006, p. 251)
Culture starts when you realize that you’ve got a problem with language, and the problem has to do with who you are.
(Agar, 1994, p. 20)
