Culture vs interculture Réflexions d’ordre didactique
The concept of culture and intercultural culture, one of the key components of teaching / learning of foreign languages, has occupied, since the 80s, the Council of Europe, who proposed the incorporation of the (inter) cultural approach into the educational curricula. The (inter) cultural approach, given the multilingual and multicultural school morphol-ogy, was positively welcomed by the educational community providing a challenge for teachers and creating incentives for students. However, this innovative initiative in re-sponse to the needs of a multicultural Europe, does not cancel, even today, the reasona-ble question of which culture is the more appropriate between the 'academic', 'empirical', and ‘informal’.
Primarily, this approach could easily constitute a teaching object, avoiding, however, the risk of reproducing stereotypes and stereotypical relations, adopting instead strategies that will lead to the cultivation, recognition and acceptance of cultural otherness.Secondly, it could facilitate the integration of multilingual and multicultural students in the school environment allowing, in this way, the development of intercultural skills, which will contribute to the creation of harmonious intercultural relations.
