which includes a lecture on Buddhism by an English speaking Buddhist
Monk. The language used on the course is English. All lecturers are
proficient speakers of English. On cultural visits to places where
there is no English speaker, e.g. visits to handicraft workshops, a
bilingual 'guide' accompanies the group. Thus the course offers the
opportunity for students to practice their English speaking skills,
albeit in a non-native speaking environment.
