The challenges of dealing with intercultural interactions can be stressful. You can already speak English, but in some situations you feel you don't have quite the right words. Or maybe you don't have strategies to manage particular situtations. In this course, you will build sensitivity to cultural differences and gain building blocks to communicate more effectively and with empathy, at the office, in educational fields, or the social sector.

With goal-oriented exercises such as role play, group activities, strategic tasks, self-reflection, and student-led discussions we will train skills in different areas. And we will also take advantage of this beautiful location, with a field trip planned for enhancing skills learned in class.
