Though research on improving listening skills through the use of movies has been advancing, little has been conducted with regard to intercultural education in English language teaching. The purpose of this paper thus is to demonstrate a method for intercultural communication education using the film "Mr. Baseball." Specifically the purpose is three-fold. First, I will review the literature on the research regarding the intercultural learning process and models for intercultural adaptation. Second, on the basis of the framework of the intercultural learning process, I will make a material analysis of the film. More concretely, I will divide the film into three parts, reciprocal denial stage, discord stage, and reciprocal adaptation stage. Third, I will propose a practical application for teaching intercultural communication employing the results of the material analysis.
