*Are you interested in learning English idioms, slang, and expressions used in everyday, real life situations?

*Intercultural communication does not only involve skills in communicating with people from different cultural and linguistic backgrounds. It also involves tolerance of ambiguity and an openness to negotiate when the "conversational rules'' are not always explicit. This workshop will address some of these hidden rules, and workshop attendees will practice effective strategies for pre-empting and managing miscommunication with others.
