CROSS-CULTURAL INTERACTIONS 1. What seems to be logical, sensible, important and reasonable to a person in one culture may seem stupid, irrational, rude or unimportant to an outsider. 2. Feelings of apprehension, loneliness, lack of confidence are common when visiting another culture. 3. When people talk about other cultures, they tend to describe the differences and not the similarities. 4. Differences between cultures are generally seen as threatening and described in negative terms. 5. Personal observations and reports of other cultures should be regarded with a great deal of skepticism. 6. One should make up one’s own mind about another culture and not rely on the reports and experiences of others. 7. It requires experience as well as study to understand the main subtleties of another culture. 8. Understanding another culture is a continuous and not a discrete process.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
