The call for increased understanding between cultures has never been louder or more urgent, particularly in the world of education. But, how can English teachers working with young learners move beyond narrowly focusing on language and include a strong intercultural learning element? This seminar offers teachers creative approaches to respond to this call to action, carefully crafted for the young learner English classroom. We will begin by defining ‘interculturality’ and ‘creativity’ as well as unpacking the barriers to both in the young learner English classroom. Then, we will explore a variety of practical discovery techniques for intercultural learning, illustrated with creative lesson ideas using engaging picturebooks, songs and web quests. The activities are based on flexible teaching frameworks, adaptable to other topics with great potential for both rich intercultural understanding and English language learning.
