Communication and Culture (Module 4 of the Cross-cultural Essentials curriculum) begins by focusing on God’s desire to communicate clearly, and what it is that He wants to communicate. All human communication takes place within the context of culture, so Module 4 is an in-depth exploration of culture; what it is, and how we can understand it. Understanding our own culture more objectively begins by making comparisons between different cultures in specific areas, such as the concept of time, areas of obligation, styles of communication, and social relationships. Module 4 finishes by giving an introduction to the major principles of acquiring another language and culture and becoming a clear communicator in another culture.

Assignment questions and discussion questions are on the PDF Tutorial files.
