C1. National stereotypes

This workshop dealt with an issue that, nowadays, is of vital importance worldwide. Lithuania, being a member-state of the European Union and of the world community, faces the problem in its full swing. Lithuanian citizens (especially young ones) are leaving the country in hundreds while people from Eastern Europe and Asia are coming in search of better living conditions and work. Students should be informed on the modern tendencies of the process and realize both its benefits and drawbacks. Moreover, tolerance to people of other origins and religious beliefs should become one of the main characteristics of a real citizen. In addition, it’s necessary to distinguish false and true values and be aware of schematic and exaggerated character of national stereotypes. You can check both the presentation and the lesson plan of the activity.
