·       We’ll discuss these various topics in class.

·       We’ll also discover about English humour through various series and discuss this in class.

·       You’ll also consider the connections between these different topics, English as a language and the British culture;

·       This course will invite cross-cultural comparisons and thereby promote inter-cultural discussions and awareness.
