Welcome to Cultura

Cultura is an intercultural project that connects groups of students online to help them understand each other's culture. A Cultura exchange is typically based in a language class and involves two partner teachers and two groups of students from two different cultures.

For educators

In the guide you will find resources for teachers, including ideas and materials to support both online and classroom learning.

If you are interested in starting your own Cultura exchange, we have created a free, open source tool that will enable you to host your own exchange.

For researchers

The Cultura project has been running since 1997. Our archives are a rich source of linguistic and cultural data and include exchanges in English, French, Russian, Spanish, and German, among others. To see what students have shared with each other over the years, we invite you to explore past exchanges.

Learning from experience

If you are already using Cultura in your classroom, we invite you to share your experiences with the community.
