Chapter 1 Introduction to Intercultural Competence Explain the purpose of this book- p. This book was written with the purpose in mind to provide readers with the necessary conceptual tools in the understanding of how interpersonal communication can be affected by cultural differences.

The book also provides readers with practical advice that can be utilized to achieve competence with these cultural differences. List and explain the five imperatives for intercultural competence. Demographics are the numbers that illustrate the cultural makeup of the world and are a necessary component in understanding intercultural competence. The demographics of a country, a state, or a school will illustrate the cultures that make up the place you live or work in for a better intercultural competence.

Technology has created a simple method to interact with people halfway around the world. Technology has opened the door for interaction, collaboration, and discussion amongst cultures.

The economy is no longer one based solely on the place you live but also with the multitude of other countries that buy and export to your country. The economy is now a global market and there is constant interaction between different cultures. There are clashes based on cultures all around the world daily and through peace cultures can learn to appreciate culture differences.

All around you there are people from different cultures and having a relationship with others from different cultures depends on your communication skills. The first part of the definition is symbolic as there are both verbal and nonverbal symbols that can communicate several different things in different cultures. For example in America a thumbs up is a good job symbol whereas in another country it could be a symbol for a bad gesture.

Communication is all about symbols through gestures and words that mean different things to different cultures. Interpretative signifies that communication is about interpreting the symbols that people are putting out there. This also means that communication can be interpreted incorrectly and will most likely happen when there are different cultures involved. When you communicate the person on the opposite end of the conversation is interpreting what you are saying and gesturing.

Communication is filled with interpretation. Stating that communication is transactional means that communication is a transaction between two or more parties. There is a give and take of parties through communication in which both parties are participating in the action.

Stating communication is contextual signifies communication always takes part in a setting whether it is a physical, social, or interpersonal context.

The physical context is the actual location of where the communication is taking place. This includes whether you are in a loud or quiet place, is it hot or cold, are you close or far apart, indoors or outdoors, etc. The social context of communication is that of the atmosphere for example is this somber funeral, a lively party, an engaging classroom, a quiet workplace. In different cultures there are also different social contexts that will be acceptable and one must learn to navigate these when communicating.

Communication has an interpersonal aspect as communication will differ between colleagues, best friends, boss to worker. There will be different ways to communicate depending on the interpersonal relationship of the communicators. Communication is a process that is always changing, developing, and adapting to fit new criteria surrounding the communication.

Lastly communication involves shared meanings that are created and then shared by groups of people that also share in the same experiences every day. With the country we live in we need to get used to interacting with people of other cultures. As evidenced by the five imperatives of intercultural competence there is an extremely large need for intercultural competence. As a future teacher intercultural competence will benefit my future classrooms greatly. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.

NIV In Galatians it reads that we should not bite and devour each other or we will destroy one another. What an excellent way to describe what hatred is capable of. In our text Lustig and Koester place an importance on peace stating that there are clashes of cultures daily because of hatred.

Peace is of extreme importance for if we begin to bite and devour one another we will destroy each other. Galatians also states that we are called to be free but with this freedom we should not indulge in sin. Rather we should love one another humbly. What an excellent example of intercultural competence as we are called to love all our brothers and sisters humbly. Remember through hatred we not only destroy others but ourselves as well.
