Description - Cross-Cultural Dialogues:74 Brief Encounters with Cultural Differ by Craig Storti
According to Craig Storti, so much culture lurks in the common conversation that many of our most common, seemingly innocent exchanges are cultural minefields waiting to explode into cultural misunderstandings. This work is a collection of brief conversations between an American and someone from another country and culture. Each contains at least one breach of cultural norms, which the reader is challenged to figure out. Read on one's own, the dialogues can be your introduction to cross-cultural understanding. Used in training sessions, they help participants explore cultural differences. Ten cultures are represented: Arab/Middle Eastern, British, Chinese, French, German, Hispanic, Indian, Japanese, Mediterranean/European and Russian.
