CLIC: Cultural skills: Living in Britain new Fri 19 Nov 2021   16:00 [Places]

Living in Britain

This seminar focuses on any questions participants may have about aspects of living in Britain that are of particular interest to them, whether cultural, intercultural, historical or social.

It discusses practical everyday issues that participants may already have encountered, both within the University environment and in the wider community, and also possible situations that they may be concerned about dealing with in the future.

This is a very relaxed and informal seminar which will be conducted on a Q+A basis, and participants should email their questions or areas of interest in advance to Sheila Dodds (smd48@cam.ac.uk).

Discover a bit more of Cambridge each term. Meet a member of our English team in CLIC and then take a guided walk to learn about different aspects of the city.

Have you ever struggled with other students’ or colleagues’ styles of communication, wondered why some people seem to use more formal language, or be more direct than others? Culture plays a big part in how we communicate and adjusting to the cultural communication norms means more than learning a foreign language. Join our workshop to learn more about the importance of cultural competence in interactions - find out more about the impact of cultural (national, regional, interdisciplinary etc.) differences on management styles, team dynamics, communication and more.

This is an interactive workshop and you will be expected to actively contribute.
