Student attitudes and intercultural communication studies

One works against their prejudices and judgmental attitudes in teaching intercultural communication to students, in preparing them for dialogue with strangers in professional settings. Cases of young adults with little or no experience of life away from home, much less of contact with foreign people and cultures, are even more problematic.
