Upcoming Events

Professor Hiromasa Tanaka
Doctor Florin Nechita
Friday, 14 October 2016 - 6:30pm - 8:30pm

Well-known business discourse analyst, management training consultant, prodigious author and ex-TV guy, Professor Hiromasa Tanaka (Meisei University) will be giving a talk at NYU on a Japanese-Romanian experiment on the development of intercultural communication through Project Based Learning (PBL). Anyone interested in IC, Business English or pragmatic development should come along to NYU on Friday, October 14th to hear Hiro and his co-researcher report on a rather unique project in Transylvania that investigated the development of discourse strategies in English during a 15-day collaboration between a Japanese and a Romanian project team. During the talk, Hiro and his Romanian co-researcher will draw conclusions on the development of mutually comprehensible discourse strategies within the team: their efficacy and learnability. Also, pizza afterwards!
