This book explores the wide-ranging terminology relevant to intercultural dialogue. It reports on a research project that explored the management of value judgment in foreign language education to overcome prejudice, which is a key dynamic in intercultural dialogue that brings many other factors into play.
A refreshingly engaging monograph sharing a passionate researching practitioner's insight into intercultural issues in foreign language education and offering a long-awaited theory- and evidence-based model for anyone interested in cultural issues in foreign language teaching and learning. One thing is for sure, once you start reading, you will find it hard to put the book down.
