ASSESSING INTERCULTURAL COMMUNICATIVE COMPETENCE
Assessing Intercultural Communicative Competence. This paper intended to provide arguments in favour of teaching and learning foreign languages through an intercultural learning approach. The acknowledgement of the fact that all learning is placed in a social context has multiple implications both in the way teaching and learning sequences are planned and in the way assessment is conducted. The assessment of the intercultural communicative competence is challenging because culture is perceived in a subjective manner.
