Course Overview As the world increasingly relies on English as a de facto international lingua franca, many speakers assume that this would simplify most communicative burdens. However, sharing a common language is only one component in successful communication - speakers must also realize communicative differences that are due to differing cultural backgrounds and assumptions. This course will introduce students to the field of intercultural communication - and expose students to the benefits of looking at English communication through this perspective, as well as the consequences of avoiding this aspect of communication, especially within the American context. Students will have opportunities to collect and analyze data to see whether they notice differences in communicative styles.
