Summary/Abstract: Intercultural learning is often seen as a process of growth and development, resulting from the understanding and accepting cultural differences. Intercultural learning is more than an encounter with another culture and is more than a cultural shock. It is based on the assumption that the fear of strangers is not a natural destiny, unchangeable and cultural development has always been the result of contact between different cultures. The prefix "inter" suggests that historical fear of foreigners can be overcome, that can structure relationships and exchanges between cultures. Moreover, intercultural learning is based on the device to make the encounter between cultures productive, to achieve awareness of their own culture outlet, to be able to see their culture from a relative perspective and to discover new ways of coexistence and cooperation with other cultures.
