Ready for intercultural encounters: Try now!The trial version of contact2culture gives you food for thought on 8 subjects around culture. Enjoy! Instructions Solution
- For each round, contact2culture will hide 16 different images behind the compass logo. Every pair (two images) is linked to one subject. Important: The images forming one pair will show two different pictures!
- With a simple click on each compass logo, you will reveal the image beneath. As soon as you have discovered a matching pair, a window will open with some questions for your reflection. Please, take your time and consider your ideas, experiences, and knowledge! By pressing the ESC key or with a click on the respective symbol, you’ll close this window. In case of a mismatch, the images will be hidden again.
- Once all pairs are found and all images are revealed, you may read again the self-reflection questions by simply clicking on an image.
- The subjects will be chosen randomly for each new round of contact2culture. So it may occur that you see images from a previous round again.
- You decide for yourself how much time you want to spend learning with contact2culture. For a first impression, five minutes will be sufficient. For a more thorough effect we recommend that you take at least 30 minutes at one time.

Culture as an Iceberg
- Which aspects of your culture are clearly visible to a foreigner?
- What's your opinion: How much of the meaning of "family", "illness", or "upbringing" is visible from the outside in all cultures?
- Which (moral) values are of high importance in your culture?
- How do you recognize these values? How will a foreigner recognize them?
