Die Arbeit gliedert sich im Wesentlichen in vier Teile: Nach der Schilderung der state of affairs und den Problematiken des Deutschunterrichts an den japanischen Hochschulen soll sich der zweite Teil mit theoriepraktischen Ansätzen des interkulturellen Lernens beschäftigen. Im vierten Teil werde ich anhand der im ersten Teil angeführten Argumentationen Lektion nine im Lehrbuch TANGRAM 2B hinsichtlich des interkulturellen Lernens exemplarisch analysieren. Die von Kieweg angeführten Evaluierungskriterien möchte ich zur examine anwenden. Dieser führt Evaluierungskriterien an, um die Einführung eines neuen Lehrwerkes beim Auswahlprozess zu erleichtern. Um bei der examine des Lehrwerks möglichst objektiv zu arbeiten, nutze ich diese Kriterien, welche auch im Seminar „Interkulturalität und Landeswissenschaft“ behandelt wurden.
