Council of Europe, Language Policy Division (n.d.). Autobiography of intercultural encounters

As a result of this reflection, participants will be able to: 1. Ask questions and learn from new people. 2. Develop awareness of their "own assumptions, preconceptions, stereotypes, and prejudices." 3. Adapt their "behavior to new situations and to other people, being sensitive to ways of communicating." 4. Practice empathy and imagine someone else's perspective. 5. Identify ways they might act differently in future intercultural situations (Council of Europe, Language and Policy Division, n.d.).
