CertiLingua Project Documentations

“The time in Ireland enhanced my intercultural competence in several ways.
First of all, talking to strangers has become an important part of discovering a country for me. It takes some courage but eventually I learned that people are more open and friendly, than you expect them to be. […]
Secondly, I got rid of my approach wanting to “help” people. As mentioned before, I believe, that societies of third-world-countries are in many ways better than our western European one. The aim of “development” is arrogant in a way. I try to be open and look behind the scene. I don´t have the right to judge a country or a people.
At last, I experienced myself how languages open doors. All the knowledge and the stories of people I met were only accessible because of my English skills. There is so much to know.”
