Activities for Raising Cross-Cultural Awareness [CristinaSkyBox]

Activities for Raising Cross-Cultural Awareness [CristinaSkyBox] | Internet 2013 |

"Winter skies always remind me of how rich our lives are,  with the many cultural  differences we may experience today. In the past, travelling to other continents was unthinkable; trips to near-by villages could take days. Today, one doesn't even need to leave one's personal space to learn about other ways of life. One tap of the keyboard transports us to where ever we wish.

 Globalization is often included in learners' curricula; a rich topic with so many different aspects to explore, depending much on the level of the course and learners' age. Cultural differences are usually appealing for learners: How do people eat? What do they wear to school? How do they greet each other?

There are different approaches to explore cultural differences and here are some suggestions."
