Cultural Exchange Programme
1. The Argument. Context.

We will do a small research about Interculturalism and tolerance to cultural


differences toward Europe countries. Exchange programmes and their effects.

of high school) from Denmark and 10 children of the same age from another
country of the European Union. Romania??

5. Motivation

We had chosen this topic because we think that we live in a multicultural Union,
where people must tolerate the others cultural differences. Students must learn
to be tolerant from an early age and to fight racism.

Discovering a new culture and a new life style by the help of one exchanging
week into a different country. An week trip living to a foreigner family and
involving into local social life.

Students will have common activities during the 2 weeks together in order to
discover the other’s country and culture. (local games, typical literature,
traditional food, local music and dance, lifestyle daily habits).

There will also be some common debates about tolerance and cultural
differences.

Students will come every day at school and will have common activities. The
work language is English. One day / week they will go on a trip in order to
discover the country.

Sunday will be spent in the family in order to get know better a typical Danish/

11.Evaluation – at the end of this activity each class comes back to his own home
school and talk about the exchange programme.

• An evaluation will be made for students in order to see what they had
learned, what is culture? How to deal with cultural differences? How to be
tolerant but not to give up at your own culture?

• An evaluation point will be made for the teachers too in order to see if this
kind of exchange activity helps students to be aware of the cultural
awareness capacity? Does it instigate the cultural curiosity? Does it help
for developing tolerance capacity and fight racism? What was good? What
could be better?
