    April 4, 2013 - Breakout Session D Richard Clouet, lecturer, Faculty of Translation and Interpreting, University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Spain) Florence Lojacono, lecturer, Faculty of Translation and Interpreting, University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Spain) Summary: Intercultural competence is commonly described as the attempt to account for the ability to go beyond one’s own culture and interact with other individuals from linguistically and culturally diverse backgrounds. In that sense, contact with other languages and cultures provides an excellent opportunity to foster the development of intercultural communicative competence and online transnational programmes play a unique role in offering students the opportunity to put into practice their intercultural competencies.
