    hello, lot of scholars said that when we teach a language we implicitly teach its culture. so do you think that this will affect the students negatively or positively???? and do you believe that teachers are qualified to do so especially when the target language is completely different from the native one?

    Hi Mariam

    I agree that we teach elements of culture a lot of the time when teaching a language, as culture and language evolve together. But I’m not sure what you mean when you say it could affect students negatively – could you expand on that?
