Teresa Knapp is the Director of Program Development for International Student Exchange. She has been in the field of student exchange for 25 years.
Her 3 tips for becoming more culturally competent are:
- Get rid of common sense; what works and sounds like common sense in your own country and culture will probably not work in an other culture.
- Be open to communicating, and make sure you are truly listening.
- Be willing to learn, and to see through the eyes of the other culture.
