The project deals with the topic of analyzing teaching culture and intercultural communicative competence in English lessons at lower secondary schools. For this purpose, a system of categories for analyzing teaching culture and intercultural communicative competence in English lessons videotaped in the project of CPV Video Study of English was designed that will be used for further analysis of the sample of 79 videotaped lessons.

Results

The goal of this particular project was to present the preliminary findings of a dissertation project focused on analyzing teaching culture and intercultural communicative competence in English lessons. The poster presented at the international pre-conference ECER 2009 (European Conference on Educational Research): Theory and Evidence in European Educational Research (25 September 2009) introduced the system of categories developed for observing and analyzing teaching culture and intercultural communicative competence in English lessons and examined the time distribution of the individual categories in the sample of 79 lessons videotaped in the project CPV Video Study of English. This approach focuses on the theoretical concept of teaching as creating opportunities to learn, which is the theoretical starting point of CPV Video Study of English and enables an analysis of the quality of teaching culture and intercultural communicative competence in English lessons. The findings represent important preliminary findings about the quality of education in the area of teaching culture and intercultural communicative competence in English lessons that are meaningful for improving both the quality of teaching and professional development of teachers.
