Developing Students' Intercultural Communication Competences in Western Etiquette Teaching
Zhang, Xiaochi
English Language Teaching, v3 n4 p224-227 Dec 2010
How to develop students' intercultural communication competences is a controversial issue in foreign language education in China. In this article, the author attempts to offer an answer to this issue by putting forward a proposition for developing students' intercultural communication competences in western etiquette teaching. First of all, the paper discusses the importance of developing students' intercultural communication competences in western etiquette teaching. Then, the author dwells on the four dimensional approaches to developing students' intercultural communication competences, such as teaching students' basic knowledge of western etiquettes in class and providing more teaching practice opportunities as languages partners, tour guides, all kinds of activities and so on. In this way, we will reach our final goal of foreign language education so that our students will enhance their intercultural communication competences.
