Intercultural Competence in ELT (Kobo eBook)
The 21st-century technological revolution has facilitated worldwide communication and expanded personal and cultural relationships between individuals and groups on an unprecedented scale. People from different countries and backgrounds are now in constant communication. As a result of this increased contact, in the field of English language education, the importance of developing learners’ intercultural competence has been strongly emphasized on both sides of the Atlantic, by national and intergovernmental organizations such as the Council of Europe, and ACTFL in the USA. The main aim of this book is to provide language teachers with comprehensive guidance on developing their students’ intercultural competence in the classroom.
