The purpose of this project is to promote meaningful cross-cultural communication in the ESL classroom. As a game, ORACLE works on various levels. The most obvious area is more effective language use through reading, speaking and writing. As a tool for culturalawareness, it reveals participants' underlying impressions/prejudices of one another as well as working on their ability to listen beyound the words spoken to the personality beneath. Its intent is the enrichment of people through cooperation and the understanding of the unpredictable nature of Humankind.
