"Lingua e Cultura Inglese"

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] "English Language and Culture"

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The guidelines contained in the Indicazioni Nazionali – Lingua e Cultura Straniera for Italian upper secondary schools are compared to those in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages with regard to the role of culture in language teaching. Although frequently downplayed in traditional language teaching, intercultural awareness and skills are recognised as central in the two documents. For this reason and since English is frequently used as a lingua franca among cultural diverse people, the article offers guidelines for planning intercultural school exchanges, valid educational tools to promote students’ cultural awareness and skills.
