Abstract

Abstract]: This paper discusses intercultural language teaching vis-à-vis English as a global lingua franca. The discussion is based on a survey that was carried out with international students enrolled in English Language Intensive Courses for Overseas Students (ELICOS) programs in Australia. The research aimed to gain insight into students' cultural learning needs and their culture-learning experiences in the language classroom. Fundamental questions about the goal, the content and the methodology of teaching culture are discussed. International students' stereotypical views of Australians are also identified and presented.
