Abstract: In this chapter, the authors call the phenomena, beliefs and the ensuing attitudes, ‘walls that have been built by ghosts’. They guide the reader in his/her interrogation of the idea of Intercultural Competence (IC), to help him/her tread their own paths through the muddy roads of IC in education. Many ready-made ideas, discourses, words and phrases are imposed on scholars and practitioners about IC that many people do not dare to question or dis-use. Used in language education and teacher education in different parts of the world, this model has been recently complemented by the Confucian Model which relies on a revised understanding of Confucian Ethics. Teacher education has sometimes presented its responsibility to be the delivery of a concrete toolkit of skills and answers for any foreseeable contingencies in schools. The chapter also presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in this book.
