The focus of the paper is the identification of cultural and linguistic aspects that affect the dynamics of online cross-cultural and cross-linguistic professional communication. The researched groups are TAPP-linked undergraduate students of writing courses at the University of Minnesota in USA and intermediate/advanced MA English language university students in Poland (State University of Applied Sciences in Konin). The thesis defended is that the development of students’ technological awareness and professional skills is positively afforded by online collaborative contacts with peers of other languages and cultures.
