Using cultural informants from your own personal network.

Absolutely interactive highlights the Crossing Borders forum which aims to foster intercultural dialogue.

In Absolutely Personal we talk to Greg Houfe who had two French internships almost twenty years ago as part of his degree in European Business Administration.
Looking back did he think working at Moët et Chandon benefited him? Would he now employ a former intern preferentially over someone who had not had this type of experience?

In Absolutely Linguistic I talked with Gwen and Mia, 12 and 9, who are bilingual in Danish and English. Does this affect their identity? Do they mix the languages up?

And finally in Absolutely Confidential I talked to Tony Fox who was caught out in a conference in Germany recently.
The Host of this show is: Anne Fox

    As secondary school teachers our job now is to prepare future students for the kind of experiences and training that you feature in this programme; intercultural education is now gradually finding a place in schools and we must encourage all teachers, not just foreign language teachers to be part of it.

    Thanks for the podcasting.

    Can’t quite find out where you are based. Had an idea it was in the UK and if so I am surprised and delighted to hear that the intercultural aspect is coming to the fore.
