A Spanish-Mauritian cultural exchange

This project commenced at the beginning of March between fifteen university
studying English in

my school and eighteen participants from the Faculty of Computer Science at the University of Mauritius. The
Spanish students are preparing for the C1 and C2 Cambridge ESOL examinations, whilst the Mauritian students use English as a medium of learning.
The aim of the study is to perceive how the two cohorts of participants can learn about different cultural factors proper to each nationality through the social network, Elgg. All the students have to
perform their weekly tasks based on various subjects, such as their university education, lifestyle, hobbies, sports, food, festivals and music. The tasks are communicative
in order to encourage
the participants to
exchange views on each other&#39 s posts with a view to foster intercultural competence.
The final task will involve the making of a short video to show their different daily activities and highlights of each
country&#39 s
main attractions.
