An introduction is provided to the basics of intercultural communication, designed to go beyond cultural contrasts. Factors involved in communicative exchanges with people from other cultures who may think, feel, or act differently are explored. The importance in different cultures of gestures, valuing individuality versus the group, and culture shock when living in a foreign country are discussed. Tests or exercises are provided involving what to do in various situations to make an interaction more pleasant.
