This project involved groups of deaf young people from the Czech Republic and Great Britain. It aimed at comparing the living conditions and educational opportunities of deaf young people in the Czech Republic and in Great Britain and at exploring diff erences between British and Czech sign languages. The project also focused on developing participants‘ independence and organisational skills and on fostering intercultural learning by comparing ways of life in Britain and the Czech Republic. The most important activity for intercultural learning and personal development was the workshop on British and Czech sign language. A discussion on diff erences between the way of life for deaf people in the Czech Republic and Great Britain was also highly appreciated. Through a pantomime workshop, the participants identifi ed the barriers and stereotypes concerning deaf people in society.
