Abstract

In dealing with the needs of non-Cantonese speaking students with diverse cultural background inside mainstream classrooms, Yuen found that complaints of inadequate professional support and trainings were commonly reported by teachers. The study compares and discusses the intercultural sensitivity of both pre-service and in-service teachers. 103 pre-service teachers attending full-time postgraduate diploma in education programme and 386 in-service secondary school teachers participated in the Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI) questionnaire survey.
