The highlights of the IEREST project were presented at the 2nd international conference LGW held at the Leeds Beckett University in Leeds, UK, on 27th and 28th May, 2015. The conference theme includes a number of aspects explored also by the IEREST project in its ambition to integrate intercultural and language learning in the teaching modules. The presentation titled “Tracing intercultural and interlinguistic moves within and beyond student mobility programmes: The case of the IEREST project” was delivered by Neva Čebron, University of Primorska, Slovenia and generated a very positive response. Many of the participants recognized the topics tackled by IEREST project as central to their own intercultural experience and were interested in the approach to teaching foreign languages, including English as a lingua franca, which goes beyond mere language teaching, but endeavours to develop  learners’ intercultural communication skills. New contacts led to new initiatives of cooperation in the future.
