Intercultural language education

Since 2003, starting with the thesis I carried out for my MA degree, my research interests focus on language learning and teaching in an intercultural perspective. In particular, I have been studying:

  • The theoretical and methodological challenges of integrating intercultural and communicative objectives in language curricula;
  • Models of intercultural (communicative) competence;
  • The language-culture nexus in language education, in the light of the recent non-essentialist approach to applied linguistics and social sciences;
  • Language and intercultural learning in an interactionalist and socio-cultural perspective;
  • The assessment of intercultural learning.

Study abroad, intercultural education and multilingualism

Since 2012, when I started coordinating the IEREST project, I have been interested in study abraod and internationalisation in higher education. Preferably, I address these issues too in a linguistic and intercultural perspective, and thus concentrate on:

  • Teaching methodologies which can foster mobile students’ intercultural learning;
  • Language uses within the Erasmus communities: code choice, code-switching, and multilingual interactional dynamics in general.
