22 unread replies.22 replies.
It’s natural for us to communicate one way with our close friends and loved ones and a different way with strangers or mere acquaintances. We also find it natural to communicate in culturally accepted ways with people of our own culture, and we may feel at ease when communicating with others from a different culture. In this discussion activity, we will examine some of the questions about communicating ethically with others according to the intimacy of our relationships with them and according to cultural similarities and differences. This activity aligns with module outcome 1.
