Course Details

Pooh Bear, Tigger, Eeyore, and friends—this beloved group conjures light-hearted images of an idyllic childhood, but it also has much to say about the magical combination of psychology with linguistics as it pertains to second language acquisition. In this course, we will examine several concepts embodied by the 100 Acre Wood friends, including but not limited to extroversion, group dynamics, memory, and the myriad roles of community, family and other social units. This course intended for students interested in the intersection of psychology and linguistics, but its relevance extends as well to the business world, management, and more. The course will include both lectures and discussion, for which an intermediate level of English will be sufficient.
