Consider respect cultural differences

  • EYE CONTACT – differs culturally and internationally, seek first to understand a behavior that may differ from what you are used to before judging the behavior as odd or negative. Accept different behaviors as just that, different, not abnormal or crazy or disrespectful.

  • PERSONAL SPACE – do not expect people to be comfortable with your personal space. Comfort from our personal space can vary dramatically and already has been found to differ culturally, and even when comparing men versus women.

Consider respect cultural differences continued

  • FORMAL VS. INFORMAL – how we address each other, talk to each other, and how we build repertoire with people we are meeting for the first time can vary culturally, by country, by age, etc.

  • CONVERSATION STYLE – some people will offer their unsolicited opinion while others will wait to be specifically asked for their opinion. Encourage both kinds of people to participate. This is often culturally bound or determined.

  • Thinking about learning styles, describe a typical classroom environment in your own country of origin. How do the teachers behave? How are the students supposed to behave? Do you like or dislike this style of leaning/teaching?

  • Now, think about your experiences in American classrooms. Is it different than your classroom experiences at home? How? Do you like or dislike the American style of teaching/learning?
