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.

  2. How do you know which ones you have?
  3. How can you demonstrate them to your future employers?
  4. How to develop them?
