|This course is intended to help students become competent in communication with others of diverse cultural backgrounds by helping them expand their range of verbal and nonverbal communication skills, become able to communicate effectively in unfamiliar settings, recognize the influence their own culture has had on the way in which they view themselves, and expand their knowledge of the ways of other cultures.|
|This course is a continuation of Intercultural Communication I. We will take up where we left off at the end of the first term and continue with the second half of the text. We will continue to conduct the classes in the same way as the first semester, but the content will be increasingly complex. The course will be conducted entirely in English: readings, discussion, reports, term paper, presentations will all be done in English. Students will thus be continuously developing their English skills at the same time they are expanding their understanding of and skills in intercultural communication.|
|Students will need to spend 2-3 hours each week to study the textbook and study guide questions, and another 2 hours to prepare for their presentation of the textbook when it is their turn.|
|Grades will be based on attendance and participation in class (30%), reports (20%), presentations (20%), and a term paper (30%).|
