Poor Communication

   

Write  a 1,400- to 1,750-word paper that demonstrates an example of poor  intercultural communication that significantly affected international  commerce or foreign policy.

Illustrate  the lack of intercultural communication by clearly defining cultural  patterns (theories, identity, and bias, for example) and communication  devices (such as communication foundations and taxonomies) between two  cultures. Select one or two intercultural communication theories needed  to address and possibly resolve the example you have given.

Include answers to the following questions in your paper: How do the two countries differ in their cultural patterns? How does communication play a role in each culture? What communication devices were used by both parties in this example? How did these devices work or not work in this particular intercultural communication example? What key intercultural communication theorist would you enlist to  help solve this intercultural communication problem? Summarize the  position of your selected theorist and explain how their ideas might  apply to the situation. What approaches or theories may work to resolve your poor intercultural communication example?
