● “See how nicely a British pound coin talks? It speaks with the voice of
Queen Elizabeth the Second of England. Her face is stamped upon it,
and sometimes when I look very closely I can see her lips moving. I
hold her up to my ear. What is she saying? Put me down this minute,
young lady, or I shall call my guards.”

LOOKING FOR A BETTER LIFE
This picture I have taken represents mainly the respect and good feelings
between two different cultures and lifestyles. In the photo we can see a
Colombian girl sitting down next to her Spanish friend. They have travelled to
many countries, in the image the teenagers are looking at Francisco Pizarro, the
Peru´s conqueror, he is an inspiration for them because he wanted to discover
new lands and these two girls would like to see every monument, every
landscape, every culture and every part of the world.
The truncated way.
This picture represents how hard the trip can be that some immigrants must
make to arrive at their destination, the obstacles that they must overcome, the
suffering, the break with their life and their culture...
Many times the immigrant way ends like this fragment of clothing, pieces in the
barbed wire of a border.
We used the ITC (interculturally completent).
This test is intented to help us look at ourself,
at our intercultural competence . The main
components are attitudes, skills and
knowledge. Depend of these components we
got the results of our intercultural competence
1)ATTITUDES: Our feelings or disposition to think, do or
say certain things as well as our willingness to make
this disposition visible when interacting with others.
2)SKILLS: Our ability to do something or to behave in a
certain way in a given situation.
3)KNOWLEDGE: Our understanding of or information
about a certain subject that we can acquire by
experience or study
● We have learnt new cultures, new lifestyles,
also wich is the process that an inmigrant goes
through before starting learning in a new
lenguage and school environment for them.
● We had fun together doing the Comenius
● We hope you have liked it.
