An Introduction to Intercultural Communication

The chapter’s multitude of tasks are designed to increase cultural awareness as well as develop the language skills. Each task is identified as having been designed for individual, pair work, small group, large group, or speech. However, tasks are easily adapted or modified based on class dynamics, class size, or session length. The aim is to help focus discussions in the classroom on linguistic and cultural backgrounds in a way as to encourage students to take steps toward a deeper and more fulfilling understanding of what it means to be part of an intercultural world.
