Location: English Language Center, Shantou University, 243 Daxue Road, Shantou, Guangdong, China
To help our students to develop communicative competence, we recognize that they do not need to learn the English of one specific culture, but must have the competence to interact with and negotiate meaning with interlocutors from a variety of cultures all using English as a medium of communication. Therefore, the English Language Center at Shantou University is bringing together English language researchers and educators who wish to integrate intercultural communication and culture learning into their foreign language teaching. We welcome all those interested in joining in a dialogue on teaching language and building intercultural competence in ourselves and our students.
