The article aims to highlight the creative ways of developing oral and written receptive competences employed during the last week of activities that preceded the winter holidays. The target group consisted of the foreign students from the preparatory year, their level in Romanian language being A1-A2. The innovative side of the activity was enhanced by designing and organising it together with the Romanian students specialised in English and French language and literature. They joined the foreign students in writing the Christmas and the New Year cards. I took into account the multiethnic dimension of the target group of foreign students, characterised by diverse linguistic and cultural features, as well as different religious beliefs, as these young men come from Cuba, Gabon and North Korea. Generally speaking, these students are open to Romanian traditions, willing to know more about them, to experience authentic customs, which helps them to better adapt to Romania during their studies, and at the same time to interact with the Romanian students from our university.
