Intercultural Communication as a Field of Study and Learning

Assuming that intercultural competences may be developed in the process of study, this paper deliberates what components are indispensable in intercultural communication and how their academic weight should be defined. On considering what is and what is not a problem in intercultural communication and referring to the original paradigm of intercultural communication by Edward T.Hall, the paper focuses on three components: the core principle of cultured behaviour, language and its quality, and matter and manner, and highlights the role of language. The paper is based on the material drawn from research into uses of English, from observation of EFL classrooms and of the functioning of language internationally.
