Intercultural awareness I
  • Aims
  • Experiencing the close link between culture and
  • Visualising stereotypes
  • Discussing stereotyped views
  • Develop intercultural awareness on the basis of

Has you attitude towards any aspect of British
culture changed since you arrived? I actually
have to say that I think I am more critical now.
I cant point out how. I think it is not so much
because of my experiences here. It has more to do
with that my expectations and opinions of the
British and England were too high, since this was
a dream come true for me. I was very positive
towards Britain and the British before I came
here, but Im not anymore. I think they are very
unhealthy, prude and rude in a polite way.
I didnt think the gap between people was that
big! (Lack of knowledge) Lots of shabby people. I
find it really bad. (I thought England was more
modern.) I like Norway better now than before I
came to England.
In what ways, if any, have you changed personally
since you arrived in England? Depressed More
frustrated More lonely Feel more
insufficient Loss of confidence
Views on the texts. (Tom, 01.11.2001) I am
surprised by all the negative opinions on
Britain.The country may seem to be filled with
people only concerned with fotball and pubs, but
if you are interested in culture, literature and
history, the country is an absolute treasure.
Continuing the text analysis (Tom, 05.11.2001)
What is your opinion on the texts? Do you think
Britain deserves the negative views offered? Many
people find the class system to be a relic from
an ancient past, but the British are used to it
today, and it does not mean that Britain struggle
more than others with issues like human rights,
equal treatment of classes, than other Western
countries they can compare themself with.

Week 10 Comment on and discuss the programmes
presented in the forum (LUVIT). This discussion

practice period you should try out your programme
in the classroom. Adjust it according to the
feedback you have been given if you want to.

Proximal zones ..The distance between the
actual developmental level as determined by
independent problem solving and the level of
potential development as determined through
problem solving under adult guidance or in
collaboration with more capable peers. (Vygotsky
197886) The concept of proximal zones is often
used to legitimise a socio-cultural view of
  • Knowledge and understanding constructed by the
    individual through social interaction, dialogue
    and cooperation
  • Language is the central cultural tool, mediating
  • To learn is to be socialised into a learning
    culture, the culture of a subject, and a
    community of practice which exists within the
    culture of that subject

Stories We achieve our personal identities and
self-concept through the use of narrative
configuration, and make our existence into a
whole by understanding it as an expression of a
single unfolding and developing story
