Cross Cultural Communication

Ms. Shiotani Maqsooda

Through teaching the different cultures of India and Mongolia, I wish to convey the importance of the blend of diverse cultures, not only just within these countries but also as a world as a whole. Along with the countless numbers of cultures, there are as many differences that one would face in each of such culture. However, to understand and accept such a difference is the significant key that ties the whole concept of globalization. Without the understanding and acceptance, the conflict that clashes between the different cultures would not be solved. Though the difficulty may remain in seeking such a comfort, to accept it with an open heart and to understand that to be different and to be unique is how it is supposed to be, it can lead one to a greater recognition of the appreciation of such differences. The power to comprehend such an idea leads one to develop in depth as a person and one that can be successful in any parts of the world.

Learning cross-cultural communication helps shape one to become more globalized, and through such an experience it also makes one feasible to pursue his/her goal in anywhere they wish to. It also brings them respect in return as the one who can express his/her own self in spite of the differences, which would further allow them to grow international. Instead of going through under a great deal of pressure and difficulty in trying to live through what may appear strange or unacceptable of the different culture, to know and have the understanding that it is completely normal for others to have his/her own culture at the same time allows them to develop as a stronger individual.

Through my lessons, I hope for my students to achieve such understandings and acceptance of others’ cultures as well as their own. I want them to concentrate more and focus on the matter closely as to ask questions and engage themselves actively in the class. Given so, I would strongly encourage them to participate more and to show interests in the topics they are exposed to.
