The Application of Constructivism to the Teaching of Intercultural Communication
Liu, Lin; Zhang, Ying
English Language Teaching, v7 n5 p136-141 2014
Cultivating intercultural communicative competence is not a process in which teachers transmit knowledge to students, but one in which students construct their intercultural communicative competence on their own initiative. By applying the constructivist theory to the teaching of intercultural communication, the author designs a model of teaching intercultural communication and elaborates the procedure in detail. This model aims to facilitate students' construction of their intercultural communicative competence effectively.
