          Abstract

          Intercultural communicative competence has become an integral part of curricula in primary, secondary and tertiary language education. In this context, attempts have been made to conceptualise intercultural competence models for language learners. However, so far hardly any empirical foundations for these models exist. In the framework of this study, I have therefore analysed the underlying terminological and conceptual challenges and complexities of eight models of intercultural competence (Bennett 2013, Byram 1997, 2009b, Fantini 1995, 2005, Deardorff 2004, 2011, Kramsch 1998, Witte 2014) in light of their practical use for a specific target group in particular circumstances. The preliminary objective of this work was to empirically examine the speculative components of intercultural communicative competence through a review of relevant literature and an analysis of the subjective views of BA German language students at Maynooth University, who embarked on a year abroad in the framework of their studies.
