    Question raising our learners' cultural awareness

    Hello there,
    Could you help me with some ideas for the following task, please?
    I am supposed to describe two communication activities integrating two complementary skills which may contribute to raising my learners' cultural awareness.
    Thank you!

    There are several activities to enhance leaners' cultural awareness such as Culture Aside, Culture Capsule, Culture Assimilator. Just serch for them on Google.

    Firstly, the term cultural awareness is very vague- what aspects of which culture/s do you want them to become more familiar with?

    One idea is to use comic strips which would combine reading, speaking and perhaps translation.See here for lesson plan

    Or get students to look at blogs (see Technorati) which mention their country or region and see how other people's perception of the place differs/coincides with their own.
