Intercultural learning in teaching and learning German as a foreign language in a South African context. A study

The call to transform South African university curricula necessitates revisiting possibilities and perspectives, also in teaching German as a foreign language.

The goal of this approach is to bring to the fore cultural differences, prejudices and misconceptions in order to promote dialogue and understanding and in this way promote intercultural learning. In order to determine if cultural learning indeed took place, an empirical study of the didactical intervention was conducted simultaneously.
