Intercultural learning in an eTwinning context: eTwinning is an excellent medium to train intercultural skills in practice. Yet, to become a “European” or “World” citizen, pupils need more besides language skills and a basic knowledge of cultures: A profound awareness of themselves and others. The workshop offered a selection of practical methods that can be integrated in your eTwinning lessons to make your pupils aware of attitudes and to help them deal with strangeness and change perspectives.
