Intercomprehension as Seen by Future Language Teachers in Germany
Following our previous studies in the field of student teachers’ representations about the four pluralistic approaches, we shall focus, in this contribution, on this target audience’s representations about one particular approach: intercomprehension. We will analyse student teachers’ perceptions concerning the advantages and the possibilities of integrating intercomprehension in the school curriculum. We will therefore analyse the educational, social and affective, pedagogical and organizstional and learning arguments student teachers put forward to justify their perceptions. This study aims at contributing to the planning and implementation of specific training initiatives in the field of intercomprehension didactics for language student teachers.
