Makale, kültürlerarası kimliğin ortaya çıkması için kişilerin illa kültürlerarası deneyimi yaşamasına gerek olmadığını savunur. Yazar tarafından geliştirilen anket İngilizce öğrenen 19-23 yaşları arasındaki 227 Türk katılımcıya uygulanmıştır. 37 maddelik anketten ve mülakatlardan elde edilen bulgular göstermektedir ki katılımcılarda kısmen farklı bir kimlik oluşmuştur ve İngilizce, sosyalleşme ve kültürlerarası iletişimde yeni deneyimlere kapı aralayan bir servet ve pasaporttur. Son olarak makale, dili öğrenilen toplumun içinde bulunmadan da kültürlerarası kimlikten söz edilebileceğini belirtir.

The paper argues that for individuals to develop intercultural identity, they do not necessarily need to experience intercultural experiences. A questionnaire devised by the author is administered to 227 Turkish learners of English aged 19-23. The findings of self-reported responses to a 37-item questionnaire as well as the qualitative data reveal that learners feel they have a slightly different identity and that English is an asset, a passport to a world of new experiences in socialization and cross-cultural communication.  The paper concludes that it is legitimate to speak of intercultural identity in the absence of direct contact with L2 community.
