Learning outcomes:

On completion of the course, the students are expected to:

•understand and be able to discuss fundamental issues in intercultural communication such as identification, stereotyping or social interaction processes related to multilingual interaction

•understand that different languages encode different world views and that communication itself is relative

•acknowledge and be willing to engage with different ways of seeing and with realities different than one’s own

•appreciate the complexity of human interaction and understand that culture does not determine but rather may inform our communication in different ways

•be sensitive to power inequalities inherent in intercultural communication
