In this subject we aim to develop students' skills in communicating with those from other cultural backgrounds. In order to understand the dynamics of intercultural communication we make use of real examples of intercultural discourse and analyse them using methodologies from ethnography of communication, conversation analysis and interactional sociolinguistics. The cultural values associated with particular aspects of communication such as non-verbal communication, discourse organisation, politeness, greetings, requests and attitudes to emotion are also discussed.
