Summary expansion
This book highlights international perspectives on intercultural learning within a framework of cultures of learning related to education and language learning and use in academic contexts. Intercultural learning is seen as an aspect of the cultures of learning approach, which is applied in contexts where learners (or teachers) travel to learn in a place where other cultures of learning are dominant and to which they are usually expected to adapt. Intercultural learning thus refers to the learning which takes place as learners move across or between cultures of learning. Including a diversity of case studies of particular situations of language learning and use, the book offers explorations of transcultural learning by students and teachers who cross languages and borders for study or work. All authors have long engagement with the cultural participants about whom they are writing
