Abstract

With the development of globalization and multi-culturalism, English is increasingly being used as an international and intercultural language by people of this global community. Meanwhile, the rapid advancements in information communication technologies (ICT), particularly the Internet, have created opportunities for teachers and students to enrich language-learning experiences and intercultural-learning experiences. This proposed study will examine the impact that computer-supported intercultural communication between high school students in Taiwan and in the United States has on beliefs and motivational orientation toward foreign-language learning. The results of this study will inform teachers and further the implementation of ESL curriculum.
