Isabel Torrijos Martí

Cultural diversity, despite being a reality in society throughout history, increased considerably last century. Educational research focuses on giving a response to the negative attitudes that emerged due to this increase.

Taking this into account, the article proposes different methodologies that help to promote Intercultural Education within the Foreign Language classes. In the same way, after the analysis, two activities are proposed based on these methodologies that seek to promote attitudes of tolerance, equality and solidarity among students.

Thanks to this, students will be citizens capable of interacting and respecting the cultural diversity present in societies.
