With increased mobility in the European Higher Education Area, many teachers are now finding that they have students from different cultural backgrounds in their classrooms. Additionally, many English language teachers might be finding that they are now teaching students who are aiming to study a part of their degree, through the medium of English, in a different country. In both these cases, students will need to have a degree of intercultural competence and language teachers will want to help them develop this.

This presentation considers the nature of culture and intercultural competence, and summarises resources that are currently available to help teachers reflect on how they might adapt their current syllabus to incorporate an intercultural competence strand.
