Intercultural Communications: USA
Nov. 03, 2017, 09:00 until 17:00
Geb. 30.96
R 104

Germans, who plan to study and work in the USA, will benefit greatly from this seminar. The premise of this workshop is simple: understanding your culture and your own ‘mental software’ is a prerequisite to understanding other cultures – in this particular course, American ways and habits. By first clarifying the (un-conscious) behavioral patterns of the Germans and then comparing them with Americans, the participant attains an increased cultural awareness, leading to more effective intercultural communications.

Topics include:

• Examining the term ‘culture’

• Overcoming ethnocentrism

• Discovering German and American cultural values

• Contrasting German and American communication styles

• Negotiating and resolving German-American conflicts

• Becoming aware of the different stages of intercultural competence

The language of instruction is English.
