A.Komisarof 

【題目】Intercultural Communication
【到達目標】The aim will be to improve students' speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills, with the emphasis being primarily upon spoken communication. This will be achieved through group discussions, student presentations, simulations, and interactive lectures that address topics related to current issues in intercultural communication. The goal is not only to improve students' linguistic fluency, but also to improve their ability to successfully communicate through understanding the communication styles (both nonverbal and verbal), modes of perception, and values of people from around the world (including Japan!).
【講義内容】In this course, English is viewed as a tool for studying and discussing academic topics in intercultural communication. Students will be given the language support necessary to help them to grasp the topics addressed in the lessons. The teacher’s expectations are that students will be able to grasp the basic concepts in the field of intercultural communication and apply them to actual cases of intercultural conflict or misunderstandings.
