What you will learn

Communicate more effectively with people from other cultures.

Understand why there are problems in intercultural communication.

Use techniques and strategies they will learn in the course to resolve communication problems.


Description

Are you a native speaker of English but foreigners find your English difficult to understand?

Do the people you work with say they understand you when they clearly don't?

Do you feel you and your non-native colleagues are on a completely different wavelength?

Then this course is for you. 

In this course, we 

  • Highlight the reasons why native speakers of English have problems communicating effectively with coworkers and customers who are from a different culture. 
  • Help you to understand intercultural dynamics and how to deal with them constructively while, at the same time, respecting other cultures.
  • Look at why two people can have a completely different interpretation of the same sentence.
  • Discover that even native speakers from different countries don't understand each other!
  • Discuss the need for both sides of the conversation to speak "better" English.

Once we have identified the issues that interfere with intercultural communication, we focus on the simple but effective solutions you can implement. 

Solutions such as:

  • Accent reduction (for native speakers!!)
  • Grading your language
  • Concept checking

So, if you are a native speaker of English and need help because your colleagues or customers don't understand your English, check out this course now.

Usan demasiado tiempo para explicar cada concepto y solo es una introducción. Estoy perdiendo el tiempo.

very nice range of idea being shared, but a little too long introductory part, mainly key points could be highlighted. In general, Thank you, a very nice exchange, sharing of the personal experiences.

So far you've only talked about what you're going to do... 15 minutes in and I'm still waiting. I understand preamble, but this is way too much IMO.

Very relevant discussions which are so important to TEFL teachers. Highly recommended. Looking forward to the rest of the course. Nancy Thomas-Ward
