What does 'developing intercultural capability' look like?
In the new Modern Languages K-10 Syllabus, students develop intercultural capability across all 3 focus areas – interacting, understanding texts and creating texts. Intercultural capability is the capacity to exchange, understand and create meaning between people and across languages and cultures.
This infographic explores the ways you can include intercultural capability in your classrooms through discussion, examples, resources, texts, topics and content.
It is important to remember culture is not taught separately to language. Language and culture are intertwined - students learn not only the grammar and vocabulary but also how to communicate in the cultural context of the language.
