Supanida Kahanurak, Jarunee Dibyamandala, Charin Mangkhang


In the age of rapid growth in technology, language education policies in the education system must proceed with a
progressive and inclusive vision. Intercultural communicative competence (ICC) is also integral for language learners
to avoid miscommunication and become knowledgeable of individuals with a myriad of ethnicities and beliefs. This
study aims to examine the method of incorporating ICC with digital storytelling in English as a foreign language (EFL)
class to promote inclusivity among multilingual students through an extensive literature review and reflection on
English teaching in Thailand. The components and assessment of ICC, as well as the implementation of digital
storytelling will also be discussed. Learning through multimedia production and intercultural stories can enhance the
English skills of multilingual students when the teaching methodology is aligned with the geographical and cultural
bedrock of language learners. Project-based instruction such as interviews, culture logs, and presentations representing
both Western and local cultures are recommended to evaluate the English speaking skills of students.
