How many #languages can you speak? What do you think is the upper limit on the number of languages a person can know? In India for business is common using five or six different languages every day... But what about 10, 20, 30, 100 languages? #translation

John Michel's curator insight, May 27, 2013 10:36 AM

Organisations must also accommodate the different work attitudes and motivations of the generations, moving if necessary to a flatter organisational structure and providing opportunities for freer movement.

Deborah Long's curator insight, May 27, 2013 9:58 PM

An organizational shift and transition will occur in the work place as Generations X and Y inherit leadership roles once held by retiring Baby Boomers. Guided by a different set of values than Boomers, Gen X and Y will likely redefine leadership in years to come.

How You Can Simplify Intercultural Communication

How You Can Simplify Intercultural Communication | Cross-cultural Communication | Scoop.it

CD Note: speech acts are important, and may be rather universal. How speech acts are enacted, however, the word choice, tone, communication style, etc., are very culturally relative. See the book, "Communication Highwire" for more detail on this.

 

Speaking, writing and listening seem complex when you use English as a foreign language within an intercultural business context.
