(p.187) 12 Teaching Intercultural Communication in a Chinese Perspective
Discourse as Cultural Struggle

Shen Zhaohua

Hong Kong University Press

This chapter examines the current educational discourse on intercultural communication in China. It suggests that successful intercultural communication involves not only a person's linguistic competence but also his or her cultural competence and shows that learning the linguistic structure without attention to history and culture is one of the central problems in teaching English in the Chinese tertiary setting. It also provides recommendations on how teaching and training in tertiary education can be transformed and mobilized to enhance students' overall intercultural communication competence.

Keywords:   intercultural communication, China, educational discourse, linguistic competence, cultural competence, tertiary education
