Scusarsi attraverso le culture: Emailed apologies by Australian learners of Italian

Updated: Jul 28, 2023

In using language, we have the ability to cause change in the world – to evoke

emotion, to shift perception, to make or break connections. Apologising is a key

strategy for restoring or maintaining balance in our relationships, and this is

particularly true when you are a student apologising for not having completed your

academic duties.

In this talk, I will explore strategies used by Australian learners of Italian to apologise

to their teachers via email. This investigation will consider the learners’ use of

Italian in comparison to native speakers of Italian and native speakers of Australian

English, and comment on some key cross-cultural differences between these groups.
