Gestures and Eye Contact in Cross-cultural communication.

Objective: Gestures and Eye Contact in Cross-cultural communication

Date Conducted: 2nd Aug.

I have sent out below message to my students before the session.

Next Friday at 7pm we will continue watching the video on how to become a master of Small Talk. Students will present their scripts for the video first! 🙂

Our new topic, though, is Gestures and Eye Contact in cross-cultural communication. We will study it for some time just before meeting our speaker from Germany who is currently on a business trip in Shanghai. Having lived in many different countries, our guest will share his experience in cross-cultural communication, small talks, gestures and eye-contact in particular! Looking forward to welcome our guest and to practice English in multicultural environment! Dear students, please prepare a few good questions for the guest – something really catchy and fun. Improvise! 🙂 See you next Friday

How did it go:

The third INS Club went great and we all enjoyed the interactive conversation with our speaker Mori. Just an hour before Mori started sharing his cross-cultural experience (having lived in Iran, Germany, Russia, Malaysia and other countries), we watched videos about gestures and small talks,
bringing back to memory all previously learn vocabulary. Thank you guys for coming and special thanks to Mori for his time and effort to attend our class and give us a captivating speech! By the way, extra speacial super thanks to you, Mori, for the team-building game!!! The picture of seemingly useless items on the table actually conveys a lot of meaning, emotions and even hopes!

P.S. Soon all of those attended will get a dropbox file with the video of the class and an email with some hints.
Enjoy your day!!! 🙂
