Investigating the Relationship between Iranian EFL Learners' Cultural Intelligence and their Home Cultural Attachment
AbstractThis study was designed to determine whether there is any association between Iranian EFL learners' Cultural Intelligence (CQ) and their Home Culture Attachment (HCA). For this aim, 201 EFL learners containing 135 female and 66 male studying in different institutes of Borujerd took part in this study. Also, the effects of both age and gender on their Cultural Intelligence were examined. They were asked to complete the 5-point Likert scale of CQ and 4-point Likert scale of HCA. The results of correlational study indicated a significant relationship between CQ and some of sub-scales of HCAS. Then, it was estimated that there is a statistically significant difference between male and female subjects with regard to their CQ but there is no statistically significant difference among the age groups with regard to their CQ.
