COMPETENȚA COMUNICATIVĂ INTERCULTURALĂ ÎN CADRUL CURSURILOR DE LIMBĂ ENGLEZĂ PENTRU SCOPURI SPECIFICE

Ion GUȚU

Abstract


În acest articol ne-am propus să abordăm exigența și necesitatea cultivării competențelor comunicative interculturale în cadrul cursurilor de limbă engleză pentru scopuri specifice, fapt ce va facilita evoluția studentului într-un profesionist competent, capabil să interacționeze eficient cu persoane din medii culturale diverse. Încercăm efectuarea unei descrieri adecvate a competenței comunicării interculturale într-un context globalizat al locului de muncă, incluzând o revizuire a elementelor interculturale și proporția lor în cursurile ESS pentru diverse discipline. Ținem să analizăm adoptarea și adaptarea diverselor abordări de predare interculturală și activități de clasă ghidate de profesorii de ESS care preiau rolul de mediator în procesul de predare-învățare, folosind instrumente de evaluare pentru a măsura eficacitatea predării și evaluarea competenței de comunicare interculturală a studenților.

 

INTERCULTURAL COMMUNICATIVE COMPETENCE IN ENGLISH
      FOR SPECIFIC PURPOSES COURSES

This article aims to address the difficulty and need for nurturing intercultural communication skills in the English for specific purposes courses, which will facilitate the students’ evolution into competent professionals able to interact effectively with people from diverse cultural backgrounds. We try to make an adequate description of the intercultural communicative competence in a global workplace context, including a review of intercultural elements and their proportion in the ESP courses for various disciplines. We want to analyze the adoption and adaptation of different intercultural teaching approaches and classroom activities guided by the ESP teachers who take on the role of mediator in teaching and  learning; by using assessment tools to measure the effectiveness of teaching and evaluating the students’ intercultural communicative competence.
