The given research describes theoretically and practically the methodology of the formation/development of the positive attitude towards national and universal cultural values at culturally diverse pupils at English lessons in primary classes.
The modern school in a European country should form and develop pupils’ European conscious which includes openness, flexibility, tolerance to other people’s culture and accepting the other – qualities that can be built though systematical educational process. The author describes cultural conditions necessary for the formation of the positive attitudes towards national culture and towards the culture of other cultural groups of primary classes’ children.
Analysing different declarations and resolutions of the international and national organizations about the necessity of implementation of intercultural education, the investigation highlights the idea of technological process – ways and strategies – of the formation of the positive attitudes towards national culture and towards the culture of other cultural groups during teaching-learning-evaluating process at English lessons in primary classes. The concepts of fundamental values and positive attitude, interculturality and intercultural education are analysed in relation to English teaching-learning process in primary classes. The experience of multicultural and intercultural education in European and American educational systems are studied as well as the level of attitude of Moldovan pupils towards national culture and the culture of others.
Through the analyses of intercultural approaches, the pedagogical model of the formation of the intercultural attitudes of primary classes’ children (at English lessons) has been elaborated and implemented in urban and rural schools. The present research has proved that tolerance and mutual respect, understanding and accepting the others may be formed in primary classes’ children through the integration of the intercultural dimensions in the methods of the English language teaching.
With the increase of conflicts between nations and cultures, a new level of cultural awareness and sensitivity, an ability to understand and to communicate with people of other cultures and nations should be formed by the help of the primary classes’ teacher and the teacher of English in order to prepare the pupils for the real life.
