授業の到達目標
In this course, we will be developing our competence in cross-cultural communication, which is communication between people of different cultural and ethnic backgrounds. We will strive to recognize and accept beliefs and values that are different from our own, develop understanding of the value systems of others, become aware of our own prejudices and stereotyped thinking as well as those of others. We will strive to learn about other cultures, develop an open-minded attitude toward cultural differences, and become familiar with nonverbal behavior and cultural practices, values, and customs.  

授業の内容
The textbook, Cultures in Contrast, will guide us with readings, vocabulary, discussion questions focusing on various cultures, but especially contemporary American culture. Following the interests of the students, students will form groups and choose from the themes in the text (listed below) to study and lead the class in discussion each week. After we have studied a particular theme, students will write an essay or report on that theme. As well as developing your competence in cross-cultural communication, you will also be developing your ability in reading, writing, listening to, and speaking English, as the entire class will be conducted in English.
