ICT RESOURCES. OPPORTUNITIES FOR DEVELOPING STUDENTS’ INTERCULTURAL COMMUNICATIVE COMPETENCE
This paper intended to provide examples of ICT resources that could be used in order to support and enhance the learning of English, at bachelor level, from an intercultural perspective. The development of intercultural communicative competence is no longer optional in a globalized society. Face-to-face interaction rules need to be replaced by netiquette rules in a virtual space since online communication has become the norm today in all career fields. The subjective turn in foreign language teaching aims to make students more aware of their own cultural programming and cultural encodings when interacting with interlocutors belonging to other cultures. This paper provided an example of efficient use of ICT resources in order to develop students’ intercultural communicative competence in a technology-based medium of communication.
