Note from the Editor


This issue of Intercultural Communication marks the successful publication of six consecutive issues over the last two years. On behalf of the Editorial Board, I would like to express my thanks to authors and readers for their support. It has been a pleasure to engage with scholars from a range of backgrounds and career stages, and to help support the open access publication of thought-provoking theoretical and empirical work at the intersections of language education and intercultural communication. I am particularly appreciative of the support received from senior scholars in this area who have generously contributed articles, provided encouragement, and offered support with reviews.
