Instructor: Dr. Jeremy W. Bachelor
One of the five goals indicated in the ACTFL standards—the “5 Cs”— is Cultures, described as the development of a cultural understanding and appreciation by the L2 student of the relationship between language and culture, as well as the student’s own culture. This standard points towards the importance of developing the intercultural competence of L2 students, which is key for helping them communicate effectively and appropriately in a variety of cultural settings, and for valuing and respecting other people’s points of view, ways of life and modes of interaction. By the end of this online graduate course, participants will have gained strategies to help L2 students better understand intercultural differences.
