On Being European: The Contribution of Intercultural Communication Theory and Pedagogy
Boylan, Patrick
Language and Intercultural Communication, v6 n3-4 p286-296 Aug 2006
Europe can become "united in diversity" only by helping its citizens internalise experientially their composite cultural identity as Europeans. Merely conceptual "understanding" of the other cultures is insufficient to promote genuine mutual respect and real opportunities for synergy across frontiers. An example is given of how experiential internalisation can be facilitated by teaching languages as culture. (Contains 4 notes.)
