English Teaching Forum, v51 n2 p24-31, 38 2013
Using communicative activities with learners from diverse cultures can create excitement and empathy while promoting the acquisition of English. This article offers ESL/EFL activities that foster interpersonal tolerance among students who have experienced intergroup conflict. The activities are based on the idea that there are four levels of cultural awareness: self, family, community, and region/world.
