Antoinette Camilleri Grima’s dream of using Storyline for the teaching of intercultural competence has become a reality. It first materialized in the shape of a publication by the European Centre for Modern Languages (Council of Europe), entitled “How Strange! The use of anecdotes in the development of intercultural competence” (2002), and is available in both English and French. The book itself is the result of an international project which consisted of the collection of intercultural experiences, in the shape of anecdotes, that serve as input to the development of Storyline in the foreign language classroom. Storyline is now being put into practice as part of teacher education programmes at the University of Malta with the specific aim of developing intercultural competence of teachers and pupils.
