Suddendly the most obvious things might become unclear. This affects most of all differences in communication. You might start wondering...

„How do I contact or talk to the professor?”

„What behavior is expected during seminar/lecture?“

„How do I manage criticizm? Am I supposed to criticize, too and how?“

„ Are there differences in nonverbal communication (gestures, mimics)?”

„What are the differences between communication in the private context and communication in the public/professional context?"

Those are only party of the questions we are going to talk about during this 4-hour workshop. A Romanian and a German intercultural trainer will lead the discussion. Participants will have the opportunity to test their new knowledge through talking part in a role play. At the end we will work out strategies on how intercultural misunderstandings could be identified and avoided.
