Cultural Dimensions

Cultural Dimensions

Have you ever wondered why it is so difficult to write in English? Watch this video about international students studying in the USA as they talk about their difficulty about writing in English. This article will give you an overall idea of cultural dimensions: http://www.mindtools.com/pages/article/newLDR_66.htm

Access the different sections below in the book module to see videos and read short articles about each dimension. As you finish finish learning about each dimension, write notes about how this affects you and your writing. Which dimensions can you relate to in your life? Which are stronger in Mexican culture compared to English-language culture? Are there any similarities?

You will share your observations and notes by talking about them in a Voicethread that you create and uploading it onto the assignments folder.
