Example text

We may wonder whether a competent intercultural mediator does exist as the final product of educational efforts – perhaps being competent is a process that expands over each meeting with the Other, assuming a component of novelty in each encounter. Becoming involved in the process of intercultural communication one should be strongly aware of, on the one hand, the option of achieving Gadamer’s “fusion of horizons” as mentioned in Dorota Owczarek’s article, but, on the other, of the prospect of retaining one’s position, which is fixed by social and historical background, and only having it better illuminated through understanding the perspective of the Other.

This is the stage where generalizations are likely to occur and memory traces are formed. Thus the integration of new material with old can take two forms: development of the second language grammar or the storage of new information. e. once a learner has created a hypothesis about a second language form, he/she should try to use it in some form of production. The feedback which he/she obtains as a result, will either modify or reinforce the information received initially. Therefore output serves as feedback into the intake (Swain, 1985).

As I have mentioned above to commit ourselves to a process of understanding we have to understand the tradition and history behind things, since if we do not then that history and tradition will bias our view of the object we are examining. For this very reason we should not avoid history but instead reconstruct it and discover the way that it determines our view of the world and the thing that we are examining. Doing this we will perform a Schopenhauerian reversification of individual perceptions to the contexts that furnished them.
