Modern foreign language teaching approaches emphasize intercultural competence as equally important as communicative language competences (CEF 2011). Thus, there is still no unique theoretical model of interculturalism, intercultural teaching or intercultural competence (eg. Byram 1997, Kramsch 1998, Hu 1995, Goebel & Hesse 2004) and the intercultural concepts can be implemented in language course in various ways. This paper deals with interculturalism in a specific type of a language course: an e-learning course. It investigated the applicability of different theoretical models of interculturalism to an e-learning course of Croatian as a second language HiT-1 (Cvikic, Bosnjak, Kolakovic, 2012) in relation to the technical characteristics of e-learning, course main objectives and student’s needs. It will be also discussed how the intercultural content was implemented in the course, as well as the level of students’ intercultural competence after finishing the course.
