Intercultural Communication – culture and language are intertwined

Content The world is what we grasp with our senses. - Unfortunately it’s not as easy as that. We perceive the world selectively through filters and we also create it through filters - filters like culture and language.
The aim of the workshop “Intercultural communication - culture and language are intertwined” is to create awareness of the certain amount of mental programming and structures that each person carries (directly associated with his/her mother tongue) and how it effects behavior and perceptions. A specific focus will be placed on how language influences culture and vice versa and how this knowledge can be used to improve intercultural communication.
The workshop is divided into a plenum presentation (mainly focused on a broad overview of the diversity of language structures (implicit vs explicit, usage of temporal modes, gender and declination, descriptive or conceptual with associated culture characteristics), and intercultural games and exercises.
