1.-Talking to any foreigner that you meet.

You thought it would be more difficult, didn’t you? The truth is that we sadly lose so many great opportunities to make contact with other cultures because of our shiness or lack of initiative and it is so easy!. Whenever you meet someone from abroad just say hello and try to start a conversation! In most of the cases they will feel grateful and happy to share their life experiences with you. Both of you will acquire some interesting knowledges and, who knows? Maybe a new friend!😃😊😊😊

2.- Going to cultural events in your hometown.

Or, why not? You can also suggest their creation! Whether you come from somewhere else or not, it is always worth to assist to this kind of attractions in which you will have the unique opportunity to watch live performances of traditional music and dances from another or your own country and also to try their typical food! These are wonderful celebrations for all ages!
