Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review



As our world is becoming a global village, developing the area of Intercultural Studies and Language Learning is one of the best solutions to understand the differences and to deal with inequality in defence of the common good for humanity. Interculturality is a movement that starts with the appreciation of the other cultures thus defending the interaction as coequal with all of them. We know that each culture has a specific value that does not overcome the worth of the other but that they both interlock and complement each other. Interculturality is a journey of dialog, exchange, mutual listening, discovery and sharing that helps us to be open to the world. This intercultural dimension invites us to say "We" instead of "I", and, as we do it, we will search and find what is beneficial for all of us.
