Paul D. Coverdell World Wise Schools - Culture Matters

Part Two

You will now repeat this exercise from the perspective of a host country person. To do so you will need to find an informant, someone who knows the host culture well. Explain the activity and then ask that person to locate the various types of people on the chart reproduced below. When you have finished, compare your chart with that person's and then answer the questions at the bottom of this page.

HCN circle diagram.

1. What are the most striking differences you notice between the two drawings?

2. What do you think accounts for these differences? (Discuss with informant if possible.)

3. Do you see any implications for your relationships with host country people?
