dc.description This 25-minute video describes the Online Cafés project, in which language educators have worked together to design online cafés in which language learners in different locations can engage in intercultural exchange and language practice. The Online Cafés project is an adaptation of the Cultura model for intercultural exchange developed at MIT. Cultura offers ways for language teachers to access the “silent language of culture” (Edward T. Hall) by having their students engage in online intercultural exchanges with speakers of the target language. en_US
