Lessons From Zambia: Five Keys to Cross-Cultural Communication

Lessons From Zambia: Five Keys to Cross-Cultural Communication | Cross-Cultural | Interculturel | Scoop.it

"This winter break, I spent a month studying international media and interning in Zambia. I knew the trip would teach me about communicating in a foreign country, but I never expected to learn so much about communication in general. Regardless of where you are, communicating to individuals who think differently can be difficult. Communicating with other cultures can be made easier by following these five steps."

The Use of Silence in Japan (Intercultural communication) [Video]

"This is an educational video about Intercultural communication." -Sasmakh 

"The video shares a lot of good points. One missing is that Japanese seem much more comfortable with silence than Americans (Westerners). As in the business example, I found in interacting with Japanese even in casual ways, silence is much more common than between Americans. People seem to take more time to listen and think before they talk. (Sure there are impatient Japanese as there are patient Americans!)"

[Interactive] European stereotypes: what do we think of each other and are we right?

[Interactive] European stereotypes: what do we think of each other and are we right? | Cross-Cultural | Interculturel | Scoop.it

"As the European crisis ratchets up antagonism between countries, there has been a rise in name-calling and finger-pointing: from lazy southerners to domineering northerners, with plenty in between.

And that's before the football starts this summer. The six newspapers in the Europa project were asked to stereotype each other, and then asked cultural commentators in each country to assess how accurate they are."

En effet, la complémentarité de nos profils est un moteur de cohésion sociale et d'innovation.


Cette complémentarité enrichit les échanges et confronte des visions différentes, renouvelant ainsi nos schémas de pensée dans des contextes extrêmement mouvants et de plus en plus mondialisés."
