Abstract

Foreign or second language learning can be enhanced through the interaction with the target_x000D_ language and cultural context. However, it has always been a great difficulty to create the authentic_x000D_ cultural exchange which can give students a chance of experiencing the target language. For culture_x000D_ based language learning, social media can be a great tool.

Abstract

The method of using CVD or Chemical Vapor Deposition [1-2] in the formation of graphene synthesis has recently progress quite a lot. The material shows exceptional electronic properties and also characterizes suspended graphene resonators. But the fabrication of this material involves the transfer of graphene from its copper catalyst to the required substrate using wet chemical etching method.


The state of food security in Bangladesh : an econometric analysis

Vol. 9, No. 1 & 2

Abstract

The main concern of this paper is to examine the food availability, self-sufficiency rate and food gap situation in Bangladesh. Attempt has been made to estimate food gaps between production and requirement for the last ten years. Future productions of rice and wheat have been forecasted by using appropriate econometric methods such as ARIMA and Holt’s linear smoothing parameter approach.

Postmodern visions: consumer culture's (re)making of the gaze

Vol. 7, No. 1 & 2
Author(s):
Afruza Khanom

Abstract

Contemporary societies have transformed traditional identities in such a way that we, as subjects of globalization and mass consumer culture, have become tremendously self-conscious of the ‘gaze’ which makes, breaks and molds us. Postmodern visions of (im) perfection reign on TV screens and other media which constitute the way others see us and we, in turn, see ourselves.


X-Ray studies and magnetic properties of Ni-Cu-Zn ferrite

Vol. 7, No. 1 & 2
Author(s):
M. L. Rahman
S. T. Mahmud
A. K. M. Akther Hossain

Abstract

The effect of Cu2+ on the physical and magnetic properties of Ni-Zn ferrite prepared by the auto combustion technique has been studied. From the X-ray diffraction patterns it is seen that the sample has a single phase cubic spinel structure. The bulk density, average grain size and initial permeability increase with increasing sintering temperature up to an optimum temperature. Beyond that temperature all these properties decrease.


Promoting learner autonomy on a university course of English for academic purposes

Vol. 7, No. 1 & 2
Author(s):
MD. Golam Jamil

Abstract

Promoting ‘learner autonomy’ on a course of English for Academic Purposes (EAP) seems to be widely problematic as they, ‘learner autonomy’ and EAP course, are expected to supply both skills and knowledge to the learners to pursue studies of other subjects in English within a controlled academic setting.


The notion of women as bearers of culture in Monica Ali's Brick Lane

Vol. 7, No. 1 & 2
Author(s):
Syeda Samara Mortada

Abstract

Alistair Cormack (2006) describes Brick Lane as a 'post-colonial story' with a 'realist narrative'; to a post-colonial critic, this has many implications. Yet looking at this text from a feminist point of view has many further dimensions. Women in this novel function as a direct representation of their cultural bearing.
