How can North Americans improve their communication with the Chinese? A useful and efficient approach to understanding prevalent cultural assumptions underlying everyday Chinese communicative activities, Communicating Effectively With the Chinese Identifies and conceptualizes some of the distinctive communication practices in Chinese culture. Utilizing the self-OTHER perspective as a conceptual foundation, authors Ge Gao and Stella Ting-Toomey portray and interpret the dynamics of Chinese communication. They examine how self-conception, role and hierarchy, relational dynamics, and face affect ways of conducting conversations in Chinese culture. They explain why miscommunication between Chinese and North Americans takes place and suggest ways to improve Chinese/North American communication. By incorporating instances of everyday conversations, Gao and Ting-Toomey offer a realistic and clear illustration of the specific characteristics and functions of Chinese communication, as well as problematic areas of Chinese-North Amnnerican encounters. Communicating Effectively With the Chinese will be widely used by professionals and academics in communication, intercultural communication, interpersonal communication, Asian studies, and race and ethnic studies.

This is one of the first books that clearly emphasizes the role of culture and how culture serves as the primary imprint in our habitual conflict responses. It aims to improve understanding and communication among individuals from different cultural backgrounds and explains the culture-based situational conflict model, including the relationship among conflict, ethnicity, and culture; and integrates theory and practice in the discussion of interpersonal conflict in culture, ethnic, and gender contexts. Practical examples are used to illustrate the application of theory.

Seminar paper from the year 2017 in the subject Communications - Intercultural Communication, grade: 1,0, University of Applied Sciences Essen, course: Interkulturelle Psychologie, language: English, abstract: This paper will deal with different communication styles which may vary between cultures. As communication is a very broad topic, the focus will be on the theoretical framework of Edward Hall differentiating between high-context and lowcontext communication. The objective is to compare German and Chinese culture and their way of communicating for the purpose of identifying similarities and differences, but also to clarify the impact of cultural differences and afterwards be able to superiorly deal with cultural differences in communication. This gives rise to the following research questions: How does communication between German and Chinese culture differ and what problems could arise as a consequence? What should be considered to successfully communicate with people of other cultures?

Intercultural communication competence is an indispensable ability for people to interact appropriately and effectively across nations and regions in the globalized world. Competent intercultural communication enables people to reach mutual understanding as well as reciprocal relationships. In recent decades, considerable progress has been made in the research of intercultural communication competence. However, due to its complexity, many problems remain unanswered and need to be addressed. This book seeks to conceptualize intercultural communication competence from diverse perspectives, explore its re-conceptualization in globalization, and investigate its development in cultural contexts and interaction scenarios. A group of leading international scholars in different academic disciplines join to map out a comprehensive picture, providing an in-depth and up-to-date work on intercultural communication competence. The book adopts an interdisciplinary approach and enhances readers’ understanding on the concept of intercultural communication competence. It is a useful source for educators, researchers, students and professionals.

This book explores communication, culture, and intercultural communication. The emphasis is on promoting understanding of and appreciation for the rich and varied perspectives encountered in intercultural communication opportunities. Interdisciplinary in nature, the book focuses on the need to develop self-understanding as a first step to intercultural understanding, and highlights the need for the intercultural state of mind to match our multicultural world, the difficulties inherent in the quest of such an objective, the excitement of challenges on the way and the rewards of the success that are sputtering with new energy and yet waiting to be discovered. Furthermore, the book represents an initial step in the process of building competencies which may facilitate effective communication in all types of cross-cultural settings. It gives a unique outlook of how people from differing cultural backgrounds communicate, in similar and different ways among themselves, and how they endeavor to communicate across cultures. The book grows out of the philosophy that developing better interpersonal, intercultural communication skills will profoundly benefit the seven billion people who share this planet and who increasingly interact with each other by producing some guidelines with which people can successfully cope with the realities of cultural diversity, the challenges of living in a multicultural world, the need to transcend the unpredictability of intercultural interactions, the accompanying fears that such interactions often encompass, and the feeling of joy and comfort in the discovery of cultural diversity.
