We had a very busy lesson today, especially since you got your second letter from your Cambodian partner.
Cultural Dimensions Review:
After you read your letters and discussed your partner's cultural practice, we used Hofstede's cultural dimensions
to compare Cambodia and Japan, and to review last week's material. Some key points from this activity included:
We spent some time brainstorming culture-specific vocabulary that you might have to use in your next letter. For this letter's theme, you'll be writing about your educational experiences and institutions. You can also write about favorite memories and teachers.
For your letter, include the following:
b. recent news
c. topic: education in Japan (2 pages)
d. answer your partner's questions
e. ask your partner 3 questions
U.S. Cultural Patterns:
For the last part of class, we learned how American culture developed and spread throughout the United States. We didn't get time to use Value Orientation Theory to compare the U.S. to Japan, so please complete the worksheet for homework. We'll use it to review the material in next week's lesson.
1. Research your presentation topic
3. Value Orientation Theory worksheet
