A Practical Exploration of Intercultural Communication Competence Training under the Language and Culture Integration Teaching Model


With the economic globalization, intercultural communication is becoming more and more frequent. To communicate with people of different cultural backgrounds effectively and appropriately, people need intercultural communication competence. However, the current situation of intercultural teaching in secondary vocational schools is not optimistic (Huang Yaqiao, 2016; Gu Xiaole, 2017). English teaching pays more attention to language teaching, and ignores the foundation and precondition roles of intercultural knowledge and intercultural attitude in the training of intercultural communication competence. The students’ intercultural communication competence needs to be improved urgently. Based on Byram’s EU Model and referring to the practical teaching circular model of Gu Xiaole (2017), the study designs the language and culture integration teaching model to explore the effects of the language and culture integration teaching model on intercultural knowledge and intercultural attitude in English reading teaching in secondary vocational schools.

Keywords: English reading teaching, Intercultural Communication Competence, language and culture integration teaching model, secondary vocational schools
