On the background of the authentic communication crises between the man and the persons in his immediate proximity, the globalization introduces aggravating circumstances. The positive pedagogical significance of the globalization signifies recognizing the expanse of the educational languages, founded on the value of the pluralism, beyond the national frames, in order to establish both some authentic relations of communication between cultures/ nations and to avoid some risks as the xenophobe closing in someone’s own culture, the imperialism and the cultural mimesis. Through education is discovering a space and mind continuously opened towards the culture of the other, a space of the otherness, a mixed space at the spiritual meeting point of the own self culture and the foreign culture of the other. It is a space of identity consonance but especially dissonance with different / altered aspects of the multiple linguistic social and verbal consciousness are waited by a Tower of Babel or by a community of different cultures forming a kind of “coalition of players” according to C. L. Strauss – ready not only to live together indifferently and peacefully, but to communicate and learn innovatively together. Our intention is to argue the importance of the strategies of the intercultural languages and of the transfer of conflicts between generations in the field of the culture. In this direction, we propose some old and new reflection themes starting from significant fragments from the works of I. Slavici and M. Eliade.

Keywords: Intercultural Educational Languages, Education of Stereotypes, Question of Mutual Comprehension, New Geopolitical and Cognitive Strategies, The Critical Analysis of the Relationships of Power in the Discourse
