Learning a foreign language is a story full of intercultural encounters. Through Digital Storytelling, the purpose of this work was to understand cultural identities in a Spanish as a foreign language class with Turkish students from the English Interpreting and Translation Department of Hacettepe University, in Ankara, Turkey. This work created the “Different Wor(l)ds” workshop and described its different stages. The experience’s strengths, weaknesses and the five digital stories produced on that day were outlined. Also, the participants’ interactions and level of interculturality with field notes and an in-depth interview were analyzed. Students with a higher level of intercultural competence showed a higher understanding and use of Spanish during the workshop and in their digital stories.
