Three main perspectives are identifiable in teaching for intercultural competence and communication, even though there is inevitable overlap among them:1. Culture teaching is moving toward an ethnographic perspective. 2. Culture teaching is moving toward a critical perspective. 3. Culture teaching focuses on preparation for residence in another country, oftenwithout attention to language learning.
