Some questions asked by students in a recent exchange included the following:
In our countries there are different religions and different religious traditions. We would like to know how these traditions influence in the social life of your countries and in your personal life.
1) In which way is the calendar in your country influenced by the religion? (religious holydays, structure of the week,…)
2) How is religion transmitted to the young people? (at the school, family, church,…)
3) Are there any people who feel uncomfortable about their religion?
4) What religious customs do you have? (think about your personal events)
For the topic of our cross-cultural interview, we suggest researching marriage in different cultures. Here are our first questions:
1- Do couples get married before they have kids?
2- At what age approximately do people get married?
3- What does the marriage ceremony look like? for example: where it is? is there more than one ceremony?
4- What gifts do people give?
5- Is homosexual marriage legal? if the answer is yes, is the ceremony different?
