DescriptionPicturebooks are considered amongst the most valuable of resources for intercultural-related activities, for through the inter-animation of picture and word they afford opportunities to empower learners by combining critical literacy with intercultural learning. Nevertheless, empirical evidence is scarce, so I undertook a scoping study, which by definition, does not address the quality of the research reviewed, instead it charts the field with a view to identifying gaps in the existing evidence. I attempted to answer the question, ‘What is the empirical evidence to support the effectiveness of picturebooks for developing the intercultural dimension in the foreign language classroom?’. I followed a five-stage framework which included synthesising and interpreting the data by sifting, charting and sorting material according to key issues and themes. My intention is to present these key issues and themes and discuss the emerging implications with the CultNet group.
