MetadataShow full item record
This chapter reviews Hofstede’s cultural dimension model, the Lewis model, and Trompenaars’s cultural universalism versus particularism to provide intercultural communication tools to educators who are confronted with the challenge of how to effectively teach foreign students, particularly from China. This chapter also investigates how cultures are exhibited and intertwined in students’ use of the English language. Techniques on how to navigate a class mostly made up of Chinese students and strategies for how to help students succeed in their graduate studies are provided.
