The meaning of intercultural competence : A study about teacher’s reflection of students with other cultural background in schools in Hong Kong (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka sju lärares reflektioner om elever med en annan kulturell bakgrund i Hong Kong, vilken betydelse har interkulturell kompetens och vilka effekter skolsystemet i Hong Kong gör som påverkar elever med en annan kulturellbakgrund, lärare samt föräldrarna. För att få svar på mina frågeställningar har jag därför åkt till Hong Kong och vistats där i två veckor. Jag besökte två skolor och gjorde totalt sju intervjuer. Utifrån intervjuerna kan man se att de lärare som är mindre interkulturell kompetenta känner en svårighet och oro i möten med elever med en annan kulturell bakgrund. De ansåg även att orsaken till att elever med en annan kulturell bakgrund inte kunde hinna ikapp med skolgången berodde på deras kulturella bakgrund och deras föräldrar. I uppsatsen diskuteras om lärarnas reflektioner genom teorier om interkulturell kompetens och tidigare forskning om bland annat lärare i Hong Kong. 

Abstract [en]

The aim of this thesis is to investigate seven teachers’ reflections about students with other cultural backgrounds in Hong Kong, which importance does intercultural competence have and what effect does the Hong Kong school system make. Therefore, I went to Hong Kong and spent two weeks there to search the answer to my questions. I visited two schools in Hong Kong and did seven interviews. Through the interview, it appeared that the teachers were less intercultural competent and thus felt difficulties and concerns about when meeting students with other cultural backgrounds.

The teachers though that the cause that the students with other cultural backgrounds could not catch up with the language skills and the development on school subject, which they mean, could be because of their cultural backgrounds and parents.

In this thesis were I discuss about teachers reflection through theory about intercultural competence, earlier research’s and studies about for example teachers in Hong Kong
