CLIC: Inter-Communication: Culture Shock new Finished 16:00 - 18:00 CLIC online teaching

Culture shock isn’t necessarily a negative experience, but most students and researchers (both native and non-native speakers!) will experience the negative side effects of it in some form or shape when living abroad or when working in your home country but working across cultures face-to-face or remotely. Even a very good command of a language doesn’t guarantee an easy cultural ‘transition’ – one can master a foreign language to the proficiency level, but there is more to communication than speaking the same language.

In this online workshop, you will gain a better understanding of the culture shock, its impact on day-to-day interactions and how to deal with it.

This is not a webinar. This is an interactive workshop and you will be expected to contribute to the session.

You must have your webcam switched on.
