  • TITLE: A Study on the Status Quo of Chinese College Students’ Intercultural Communication Competence

    AUTHORS: Lei Chen, Zhihui Wang

    KEYWORDS: Chinese College Students, Intercultural Communication Competence (ICC), Intercultural Attitude, Influencing Factors of ICC

    JOURNAL NAME: Chinese Studies, Vol.7 No.2, May 25, 2018

    ABSTRACT: Intercultural encounters have become a fact of daily life in so many cities as well as towns in China, yet English learning is far from enough for cultivating talents with international vision and research on ICC has stepped on agenda. This paper is aimed at investigating the ICC stat quo of Chinese college students. The questionnaire is designed based on Byram’s YOGA including four aspects—intercultural knowledge, intercultural skills, intercultural attitude, and critical intercultural awareness. Research is done with data from the teacher-questionnaire for finding one focus of the four aspects for further research of influencing factors of ICC and with data from the student-questionnaire, on the presumed potential related factors of ICC like major, gender, cultural curriculums, and experience abroad for finding out Chinese college students’ ICC stat quo. 10 (half science and half literary arts) are interviewed to find out how the results come into being. Through the analysis of teacher-questionnaire data, the author gets that intercultural attitude is of the most importance to ICC. The results come out possibly because the acquiring of intercultural awareness, intercultural skills and intercultural knowledge are decided by intercultural attitude.
