Competency in intercultural communication amongst international companies, groups and organizations has been challenging as more and more diverse teams form. This talk will look at some of the reasons for problems in communication and discuss how basic misunderstandings that have taken place within different groups of trained, expert educators, native and non-native alike, due to our own varying cultural backgrounds can affect understanding.
Examples of the intercultural miscommunication will be demonstrated, and the session will offer up better methods to avoid potentially serious errors or miscommunications through examination of our own cultural voice. Many tools and resources are available to help, but the best method is teaching speakers how to speak better, listen better and ask better.

Preparing for the Workshop
Our Masterclass workshops are typically delivered in 90 mins.
At Gallery Teachers, we endorse the philosophy of building on your previous knowledge and experience as opposed to just imparting knowledge on you.
Therefore, in order to prepare you for the webinar and help you activate what you already know about the topic, we will suggest two to four reflective questions for you to consider before you join the event.
You will also be given the opportunity to post your reflections, along with any questions you may already have at the pre-watching stage, to the discussion forum.
The reflective questions, as well as ideas and shared experiences posted to the forum by attendees, will be used in the real-time Q&A session in order to generate an engaging and meaningful discussion, involving the presenter and teachers from around the world.
After the event, the forum discussion will take on a life of its own and teachers will be encouraged to continue posting their experiences, reflections and questions related to the topic of the webinar. So, if you feel strongly about the topic, we will make it possible for you to take the discussion beyond the scheduled workshop and continue sharing your ideas with like-minded teachers and teacher trainers from other countries
This workshop has the following session(s). When all Sessions are completed, you will be presented with a PDF certificate. Click on the link below to access the session content.

How did this workshop go? We’d love to hear your feedback!
Excellent workshop that mixes teaching with cultural trends
This has been a very interesting discussion on what is the Real English and the necessity to artificially standardize it, versus the will of letting it go, free to find its way and take a new shape that will overcome the separation between British, American and all of the rest of Englishes.
