Description
The anthology Intercultural Competency: Learning, Communicating, and Serving helps students become engaged and culturally competent communicators.

The selected readings illustrate key concepts and perspectives in intercultural communication that assist students in gaining entrée into small group discussions and activities. Specifically, they serve as jumping off points for in-class discussions on specific target topics, skills, and strategies.

The material addresses both verbal and non-verbal communication, as well as cultural identity and perspectives. Students learn how culture affects conflict and negotiation, as well as how cultural identity, cultural perspectives, and communication styles come into play in health, education, tourism, and business settings.

Intercultural Competency: Learning, Communicating, and Serving is ideal for introductory intercultural communication courses. Designed for undergraduates, and with a focus on interpersonal communication, the reader also is a useful learning resource for study abroad programs.
