Emerging intercultural identity in the Turkish EFL context
MetadataShow full item record
The paper argues that for individuals to develop intercultural identity, they do not necessarily need to experience intercultural experiences. A questionnaire devised by the author is administered to 227 Turkish learners of English aged 19-23. The findings of self-reported responses to a 37-item questionnaire as well as the qualitative data reveal that learners feel they have a slightly different identity and that English is an asset, a passport to a world of new experiences in socialization and cross-cultural communication. The paper concludes that it is legitimate to speak of intercultural identity in the absence of direct contact with L2 community
