Identity and Culture Project: Irish Life and Culture

The aim of this project is for students to investigate what it means to be Irish and the differences and similarities with their own culture.


The experience of staying with a host family, the student’s cultural activities in Ireland give a basis to explore the things that, together, make the culture of the country. This is supported by tasks which help the students observe and understand what they see around them in Ireland. They show their understanding by planning, recording and editing a documentary in teams on the aspects of cultural similarities and differences that most interest them.
