In the past year, the world of education in Slovakia went through a significant change due to the worldwide pandemic. At the universities, the subjects got transferred to the online world, and the curriculum, lectures, seminars, and activities within the seminars had to be adapted to this situation as well. This paper will introduce a learning activity that is used to develop the sociocultural knowledge of the students of intercultural studies within foreign language education. It will provide an insight into how the learning is performed when the students are in the classroom and how it had to be adjusted for online teaching. The outcomes of the learning activity will be presented within the paper as well to compare if they change based on the environment in which the learning was performed.
