    Cultural Mirrors

    Topic : Intercultural learning in informal situation * To think together about a comparative reflexive and intercultural methodology (including the idea of demolition of stereotypes) for activities in class approaching the cultural notion * To put the participants (learners/trainers) in situation of discovering and reflexing on their cultural environment / intercultural dimension * To create educational documents to be used in class to increase the awarness in the own culture, in the differences and in the intercultural * To think about their own culture and about the cultural differences existing in Europe * To explain their impressions by producing (write/ oral) stories on the lived experiences (in their own country / during the mobilities): blog, Web reflexive diaries containing their personal observations, reflections, comparisons with regard to their life, habits, representation) * Produce in their language (mother tongue) (perfection) or a foreign language (learning) * Create a small catalog (kind of reference table) of the cultural events in which they are involved We selected the topic “cultural habits” (festivities, dances, handcraft, ) because these are related to everyday life, they reflect the way of life of a country and so give explanations and answers for the way of thinking and the behaviour of inhabitants in certain situations or in certain contexts. Mobilities will take place when a cultural event will happen Traditions and their observance rule years and months. They have a direct impact on individuals and on the rythm of their life.They build a life experience shared by everyone. They are present everywhere and offer a lot of possibilities to exchange experiences and opinions, to communicate but also to learn about ourselves and the others.
