Overview

Teachers are cultural informants. The resources teachers use and their interactions with students convey meanings that are both linguistic and cultural. It is important for ESOL teachers to guide students toward integrated intercultural/language learning that will carry them through diverse life experiences. This book goes beyond theoretical discussions and provides concrete methods for integrating intercultural communicative competence into the language classroom through its inclusion of practical examples, engaging activities, and real-life case studies. Develop both the consciousness and the practical skills required to navigate the increasingly intercultural English learning classroom. Explore the topics of Intercultural Communication and Teaching Culturally Diverse Learners; The Role of Intercultural Communicative Competence in Language Teaching and Learning; Teacher as a Cultural Informant and Classroom Strategist; English for Academic Purposes Programs and Cultural Expectations; Employment Preparation Programs and Cultural Integration; and Technology and Computer-Mediated Intercultural Communication.
