  • 1. Name: Nathan Date: 22 October 2013 Grade 10 Humanities The T.I.E Report Choice B Research question: How do Americans and Chinese people act differently? Planning of the report: I will analyze the conflict in the movie, rush hour. I will also research online and try to understand the differences between the American culture and the Chinese culture. I will ask my parents what are the ways to prevent people these problems from happening. Before the conflict of James Carter and Inspector Lee, James Carter assumed that Inspector Lee couldn’t speak English, but after he found out that his partner Lee was just pretending, he got very irritated and start to have a conflict with Lee about solving the case by just him. Inspector Lee starts to find Carter annoying and he turns the black man’s radio on in the car. James Carter gave him a warning that he could do that in China, but not here in America. Lee could get himself in trouble in here. It is a very disrespectful way to do that in the America culture. After it happened, Carter switches the music to a pop rap English song on the radio, which Chinese people do not like to listen. Carter even matches the rhythms with his arms while he was driving. Lee finds it boring and just lays back down and relax.
  • 2. 2 [Type text] According to the movie, in American culture people like to behave in a confidant way and to talk loudly. This shows respect to each other. In the Chinese culture, it is very important not to speak loudly in front of anyone that is older than you. That shows a very grateful respect to each other. The two cultures have the value of respecting each other, however they do it in a different way that believe. Their behaviors affect how they work together for a period of time. Individualism - Collectivism should be one of the dimensions in the movie Rush hour. In the United States, they work as a team to achieve their goal. In the Chinese culture, it is best if you do it individually, because you will feel more comfortable. I believe that the reason for the Americans in the United States to work collectivism will make them feel more determine towards their goal, because any concepts that were created were shared and they make changes and

In the Chinese culture, people respect each other by using silence and work individually to achieve what they want. In the movie Rush hour, it shows power distance index dimension. Inspector Lee request the FBI to put their men back or the kid that was kidnapped will be in danger, but the FBI did things in their own way. It’s foolish to listen to some corps from foreign countries. It shows that in some jobs, it is not easy to approach to their boss and follow your orders. They are the FBI operation and Lee was just a policeman that was assisting the case, they had no reasons to follow what he requested. The ways between the two-culture works really shows the style of their culture. It is difficult to make culture problems stop because most cultures believe that actions that other culture is doing are breaking their own culture. For example talking that loud in China is a disrespectful way and working individually in the United States is a disrespectful way of doing things. The only way for them to stop this from happening is explaining each other’s cultures

They definitely need time to adapt to the situation, so the people from each culture should understand and forgive them from doing it for just a short period of time. Explain your culture to them in a polite way and try to adapt to their culture if you’re in other countries that have a different culture from you.
