                            1. When learning a Language
                              1. The goal of learning is to decentre learners from their own culture-based assumptions and to develop an intercultural identity as a result of an engagement with an additional culture. Here the borders between self and other are explored, problematised and redrawn.
                            2. Society
                              1. Culture
                                1. Every society orchestrates the ways in which children participate in particular situations, and this, in turn, affects the form, the function and the content of children’s utterances; caregivers’ primary concern is not with grammatical input, but with the 5. transmission of sociocultural knowledge; 6. the native learner, in addition to language, acquires also the 7. paralinguistic patterns and the kinesics of his or her culture.
