COM 315 Grand Canyon Week 8 Discussion 2

If you have had experience with healthcare or education in another country, describe the experience. If you have not, what are the challenges you think it would present? Imagine the process you go through in your doctor’s office or in a classroom. What would it be like to be in that setting if you were from another culture or perhaps spoke a different language?

Interview with a Tourist

Details:

Locate a person to interview who is living in your country as a temporary visitor, such as a tourist or a student from another country who will return home after a short period of time. Ask for the person’s permission to use his or her name and quotations in the paper and how to correctly spell their name. Prepare your questions ahead of time and craft them well. The goal is to find out about the person’s experience as a tourist.

Write an essay of 500-750 words about the experience. Do not write it as a verbatim account of the interview. Use quotes as needed, but write the paper as an essay. Refer to “Resource 2: Intercultural Communication Interview.” Where did you meet the person? How long did you visit? What did you learn? Was this person’s experience typical of what you read in the textbook about how hosts and tourists interact? How, specifically, did business people treat them?

Reflect on how much this experience stretched your comfort zone and how this observation could affect your intercultural communication. If you were going to do this assignment over, what could you do that would make it more valuable to you and, perhaps, to the other person?

Research Project

Details:

Choose a country that you have not lived in, nor spent more than a week in. Find at least three book sources and at least seven sources in all and begin reading about the culture of this country. You may choose a specific ethnic group in the country or discuss the country as a whole.

Research what a person would need to know in order to visit your country successfully. In your search, look for topics such as family, status of children, role of women, role of the aged, customs, taboos, superstitions, values, language, body language, gestures, prejudices, foods, clothing, work ethic, death and mourning rituals, marriage rituals, education, religion, traditions, holidays, and ways of celebrating. Also look for important events in history or politics that have shaped the culture.

Identify places that are a “must-see” for visitors to the country. This paper, when completed, will be a guide for the visitor to the country. It should be 1,250-1,500 words in length and may include maps, pictures, and drawings.
