Description: The presentation describes a collaboration that started during the International Week for Language Teachers in 2015. As a result, teachers at JAMK University of Applied Sciences (Jyväskylä, Finland) and Aix-Marseille Université (Marseille, France) started to design a project for the students to practice their spoken English skills and develop cross-cultural awareness. This presentation describes the process from an idea into a successful concept, highlighting the critical stages and providing practical examples, dos and donts, and student feedback and experiences.
