The new national curriculum for English underlines the subject’s role in developing learners’ intercultural understanding and ability to communicate with others, “regardless of cultural and linguistic backgrounds”. Teaching and Learning English Interculturally follows up these requirements and shows how teachers and learners can work to develop intercultural competence in the English classroom. The book is relevant for teachers and those who study to become teachers of English at all levels in Norwegian compulsory school.
