Fosters the proficiency in intercultural communication vital for students to thrive in private and public life
Revel™ Intercultural Competence: Interpersonal Communication Across Cultures, Eighth Edition gives students sufficient knowledge, appropriate motivations, and useful skills that enable them to experience how cultural differences can affect communication with others. The authors offer some practical suggestions concerning the adjustments necessary to achieve intercultural competence when dealing with these cultural differences. Upon completing this text, students will be able to appreciate the impact of cultural patterns on intercultural communication; use both practical and theoretical ideas to understand intercultural communication competence; understand some of the central contexts in which intercultural communication occurs; and discuss cultural identity and the role of cultural biases.
