Description of the tool

It is good for intercultural evening. Participants are put into pairs of mixed nationalities and gender (It is better to divide them at morning or evening before that they have enought time for preparation). Each couple choose one of the participating countries (from hut - random choice) to present that evening. It cannot be country from which one of the couple is. Their task is to prepare short (3 minutes) presentation of this country in whatever way they choose. It is allowed to use other people from the group (or country they should present) as the resource.

We used this twice and it was always fun. Using this is also nice way how to avoid long boring presentations (specialy when you have many countries). But it is also good to give later space for everyone to introduce their national drinks or food they brought. (not from the country they were presenting).
