Literary Texts: A Passage to Intercultural Reading in Foreign Language Education
Matos, Ana Goncalves
Language and Intercultural Communication, v5 n1 p57-71 Feb 2005
The conjunction of literature and intercultural competence has been suggested by authors who give the utmost importance to the role of literature in education. The challenge rests on how literature may help the reader reconstruct perceptions of the world by raising awareness of cultural difference and of the inseparability of language-and-culture. (Contains 7 notes.)
