The Intercultural Communication Interest Section (ICIS) addresses the ever growing needs of language teachers who must engage in intercultural communication even when they are teaching in their home countries. For the ESOL teacher who faces a classroom of students from different language and cultural backgrounds, or the TEFL teacher who has to adapt to a new cultural environment, ICIS provides teaching methods, reflective discussions, and online/in-person sessions that can help these professionals be more effective in the classroom.
