The rising emphasis for students to develop global and intercultural competence leads the purpose of this qualitative study to explore U.S.-based world language (WL) teachers’ understandings and integration of intercultural competence (IC) in their instructional practices. Recent updates to the World-Readiness Standards for Language Learning alongside the newly developed Can-Do Statements for Intercultural Communication, have prompted this call for research with WL teachers regarding how they conceptualize IC and integrate an intercultural approach to language teaching. The findings of this study will contribute to the WL field with a foundational understanding of how teachers are making sense of IC and fostering the development of students’ IC with its integration in their classrooms.
