From Non-Cultural to Intercultural Principles: A Proposal for English Classes in Brazilian Public Schools
Mota Pereira, Fernanda
Intercultural Education, v27 n6 p577-586 2016
This article focuses on English language teaching in Brazilian public schools, based on experiences in primary and secondary education, as well as in Teaching Practicum courses at a university. Through these experiences, the article critiques the overemphasis on grammar and the lack of an intercultural approach. The author engages the reader with a theoretical discussion regarding the connection between language and culture and the possibilities for the implementation of intercultural principles. The article closes with some reflections on what intercultural language learning looks like in practice.
