Issued Date: 7 Aug 2014


This action-research project was designed to assess how the use of video as a central instructional component impacts features of cross-cultural competence among adult ESL students. The study was conducted in a college-level intensive English language program in North America. Findings suggest that students' deeply embedded beliefs and values regarding their roles, expected behaviors, and what counts as language learning (i.e., grammar) influences the effectiveness of video-based instruction in developing cross-cultural competence.
