Welcome to the first ever intercultural podcast. 'Absolutely Intercultural!' is its name and, as far as we know, this is the first podcast in the world to deal with intercultural issues. We'll be releasing a new episode every second Friday at lunchtime, looking at all aspects of human intercultural communication. For example, we'll be hearing from students on foreign work placements, asking how teachers can make use of intercultural exercises and simulations in their classroom and sharing with you any intercultural stories we come across. 'Absolutely Intercultural!' won't be so much about passing on information but more about starting an intercultural dialogue between the makers, and you, the contributors and listeners. The hosts of the show are Anne Fox (CV2, Denmark) and Dr. Elmar-Laurent Borgmann (RheinAhrCampus, Germany).

Great variety, a cultural learning must
This is always a wonderful listen. Intersting chats on many topics related to culture. Thank you so much for all the great work.
Great educational tool.
This site is a wonderful tool for non-native speakers of English students who study intercultural issues. My students will use it to make brief reports to small groups about what they heard, give their opinions on these topics, and initiate discussion amongst their group members. Thank you Anne Fox and Dr. Elmar-Laurent Borgman for such a useful, timely, and fresh tool. Good for student and teacher alike!
