The objective of this innovative teaching concept is the combination of language learning, intercultural training, and practical guidance to prepare students for internships abroad. The incorporation of intercultural communication skills into a playful language teaching concept encourages students to European studies abroad and to contribute to the improvement of their cultural, linguistic, and professional skills. The curriculum of “Intercultural Competence in English” as well as ”Intercultural Competence in French” comprises six modules (language exercises, intercultural skills, cultural studies, communication skills, tackling critical incidents, additional material).
