Intercultural Competence with Novels
Where does culture belong in a course emphasizing comprehensible input? Teaching culture as content can lead to unpredictable L1 conversations. Teaching intercultural skills, like communication and perspective-taking, however, is compatible with CI. You will leave this session with a broader understanding of what "teaching culture" can be and specific strategies to build intercultural competence using the culture already present in novels.
