think of a time when you were in a situation or place that meant you had to interact with people.
I’m working on a literature writing question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
Think of a time when you were in a situation or place that meant you had to interact with people you perceived as culturally different from you. Answer the following questions:
1 What was “different” about the other people? Ethnicity? Socioeconomic background? Age? Gender identity/sexual orientation? Ability level?
2 How much experience did you have interacting with individuals from other cultures prior to this situation?
3 How would you describe your usual motivation and attitude toward meeting people different than yourself?
4 How did your communication alter or vary in this situation, dealing with people who were culturally different?
5 How would the outcome of this interaction be different if you had the same experience again, having read this chapter/having had discussions about intercultural communication in this class?
6 What steps might you take to improve your intercultural communication competence?
