Intercultural Training Exercise

Door Online-training-aus gepubliceerd op Friday 24 July 21:28

In this Intercultural Training Exercise, the students were asked to make drawings of their country and then their nationality. Students in this course were given an introduction to certain terms used in everyday life. It was a small learning experience for students to learn about the history of the country they are studying. While completing the exercise, it was important for students to also be able to draw features that are significant to the country they are studying.

During the day classroom sessions, students were asked to draw those features of the country they were studying. They were asked to focus on two things: what are the key features of the country and what are the features of the country as a whole.

Features of the country, like the names of cities, or feature of a country were important to be drawn, because students could come up with a name for the city and use it later in class. Features of the country as a whole could include hills, mountains, and rivers, because they form part of its physical attributes.

The students were asked to bring their homework back with them and explain to the teacher that they didn't know the names of any features. In the classroom, the teacher made a list of the features of the country they were studying, and then showed them to the students.

Students were then given two sheets of paper. Each sheet included two features of the country. On one sheet of paper, they wrote what city the features were located in, while the other sheet had the name of the country.

Students were then told to draw features of the country on one sheet of paper, and then draw features of the country as a whole on the other sheet of paper. After the student drew both sheets of features, they could go back to the teacher and say what features they might have forgotten, and ask for clarification of the names. They could also ask the teacher for help if they thought the features were wrong, or they weren't right for the country they were studying.

After the exercises, the teacher explained to the students what they were doing, and how much of the features were accurate, and how much was incorrect. Each student was then asked to draw one of the sets of features.

Once the students had completed one set of features, they were allowed to move onto the next set. This is how each student was able to give themselves two weeks to draw features of the country they were studying.

What the students noticed, was that they drew the features of the country, which was what made it interesting. However, when they began to compare the features of the country to others, they realized that there were so many of them that it was hard to determine who drew them.

This has shown to students that they need two weeks to practice the art of drawing in isolation. Before starting to draw features of the country, students will learn how to draw features that are unique to the country they are studying.

Another important aspect of this intercultural training exercise was the students starting to understand that they would need to draw feature after feature, in order to complete the task. It is easier to focus on one feature at a time, as opposed to trying to cover so many areas at once.

This is the reason why it is important for students to start practicing before starting to draw features of the country they are studying. Two weeks to practice drawing features of the country they are studying, followed by two weeks to actually draw features of the country as a whole.
