Understanding behaviour through language

Module Overview

Originated by: Dr Vasselin Dafov

The guiding principles of behaviour through language is a system that consists of the development, acquisition, maintenance and use of complex systems of communication.

The scientific study of language is called linguistics. Questions concerning the philosophy of language, such as whether words can represent experience, have been debated at least since ancient Greece. Great thinkers have argued that language originated from emotions while others think that it originated from rational and logical thought. 20th-century philosophers argued that philosophy is really the study of language. This module looks at the many languages we speak including non-verbal language.

We will explore

  • How many languages are spoken in this classroom?
  • Why language is important
  • What other types of language are there?
  • Exploring language with a class task
  • Playing a language game

This module includes

  • Lesson plan

We believe that some topics are approached more powerfully by bringing in animation. That is why some of the topics have videos to illustrate the learning points
