- Product Description
This book is an inquiry into teachers’ belief of inter/cultural teaching (IC) in the Chinese English language teaching (ELT) context in which teachers’ understanding is fundamental to any pedagogical practice or reform. Through a questionnaire survey among Chinese English teachers, the author tends to find out the status quo of teachers’ perception on various aspects of IC-oriented ELT context in China, including teacher’s perspective of the objectives of language and culture teaching; teacher’s understanding of ‘culture’; the cultural topics they favored to teach in the classroom; the techniques they use to teach culture; time allocation to cultural teaching and finally their attitudes towards intercultural communicative competence . The results suggest that the Chinese English teachers’ conceptualization of ICC and its relevance to ELT is vague in spite of their perceived goal and desire to develop students’ ICC. Such results indicate the significance of intercultural teacher education and interculturalization of ELT in the Chinese context.
