The ongoing development of intercultural competence is of high importance in the present globalised world. This aspect is discussed in the article especially in the context of young people, and more precisely regarding German students who should be encouraged to learn the culture and language of their Eastern neighbours. Workshops are one of the forms used to achieve that goal. The article presents a proposal for workshops with concrete topics and methods which can be used in order to increase the intercultural competence of German students having or coming into contact with Polish culture. Particular attention is paid to intercultural games because they create many possibilities not only to broaden knowledge of a foreign culture but also to be more open toward different cultures.
