ItemBridging the cultural gap: re-shaping education by integrating multiculturalism in teaching and learning(Assumption University Press, 2014) Deocampo, Marilyn F.In a world in which interracial conflicts and tensions seem to have become an inevitable phenomenon of daily life, one of the effective ways to teach respect for diversity is through education. Although people in society are more knowledgeable about the nature of global acceptance, the idea of equal-status situation and mutual expectations, racial discrimination proliferates. The multidimensional effects of Computer Information Technology (CIT) can have a direct effect on the role of anonymity that challenges the government and reflects issues that might have consequences in countries like Singapore and the Philippines where 'multiculturalism' is stressed as a positive part of the economy. This paper aims to focus on the importance of multiculturalism in teaching and in the learning curriculum in order to understand different 'cultures' so as to bridge the cultural gap. Reinforcing multi-cultural education especially in English Language Teaching may help the next generation to learn and integrate respect and dignity for all people and thus improve race relations, develop democratic values and attitudes in treating people with some degree of self-worth and not judging groups of people for the actions of a few.

ItemUnderstanding the intercultural communicative competence (ICC) of the Chinese-English major students in Chengdu College University of electronic science and technology, China(Assumption University Press, 2020) Zhou, Jia JiThis study was conducted in Chengdu College of University of Electronic Science and Technology, China and the English major’s Chinese students, as participants. The two objectives and research questions were answered by using a mixed design methodology. These different instruments: questionnaire survey organized in four dimensions: Knowledge, Attitudes, Skills and Awareness, classroom observation and semi-structured interview were employed to gather data from 184 English major’s students who participated in this study using purposive sampling.The findings revealed that the Chinese students who participated in this study had moderate Intercultural Communicative Competence (ICC). This implies that all four components of ICC; knowledge, attitudes, skills and awareness were found in the students’ English language teaching and learning.The implication therefore is that, ICC should be inculcated in all levels of teaching and learning activities, as this likely to help students to be confident when communicating with people from different cultural and linguistic background, as this helps them to be familiar with varieties of English spoken by different users in the world.
