Cross-cultural communication
Write your answers down and
share them with the group
 While you were introducing yourself, which items do you
feel very strong about and should be mentioned to present
yourself properly? What is essential for you?
 Why are these so important? Try to describe this.
 Were there items that you forgot to mention and
afterwards thought about? Or subjects that are although
very important not to be mentioned in front of people you
do not or hardly know? Why do you feel like that about
them?
 Would you change your introduction of the previous days if
you were e.g. on a hiking trip in India and you’ve met local
people? What would you change and why?
