Description The text discusses the potential of a transformation of an individual's identity through long-term residence abroad. The everyday knowledge we produce and receive is connected to specific social contexts. Their temporary transformation is a source of reassessment of the structure and the space for selfreflection. The cultural and social norms of the social reality of individuals can be more expressive when they lose contact with their natural environment. Different language interfaces bring new networks of meanings and typing. From the point of view of personality development and lifelong learning, this is a process of constitution of identity, which we demonstrate through the use of discourse analysis. The general goal of this study is to promote diversity as a resource in education and the potential of intercultural intelligence training.
