Ten questions and answers about American culture and some American slang are meant to help international students, exchange students and visitors understand U.S. culture. This program, excerpted from the cultural competence guide "100 Questions and Answers About Americans," contains questions about greetings and expressions, American gestures, tipping, race, family chores, and guns. Slides can be used by one person or can be used in a classroom, office or small-group setting to facilitate cross-cultural dialogue among Americans and people from other countries.
The guide was created by journalism students at Michigan State University who interviewed people from Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, North American and South America to learn what their questions are. Countries represented in the interviews include China, India, Pakistan South Korea, Canada, Uzbekistan Australia, Nigeria, France, Thailand, Brazil and others.
Only 10 questions from the 100-question guide are in this show. The guide, part of a series in cross-cultural competence, also includes a glossary of American slang expressions.
