I learned about how to communicate properly by saying about 6 words at a time. As it limits the words that I speak each time, I deliver a small amount of info to the other, which makes them easier to understand. If I talked within a few seconds, I don’t think many of them can fully remember what I said. I also learned to speak slowly, so that the others can catch what I said. If I was speaking too fast, they may not be able to catch the whole sentence. The key is too maintain their concentration
Entry 1 Question 3: When I was in elementary school for an after school activity I was in Girl scouts. It was fun and we did many things throughout the school year. One of the activists we did was visit a nursing home during the holidays and sing songs and visit with the residents. What made it intercultural was that we were talking to experienced elders who grow up in a different time then we did and how things were different. One resident was telling me about their job she was a sister and at time
During my time at Highline I became involved with the Deaf community which I previously had no idea existed. My original interest in learning ASL was sparked by my nephew who relied on the language as his main method of communication due to a processing issue in the Wernicke 's area of his brain.

II. Reflective Journal – Communication Communication is an important interpersonal skill in a professional career. I am sharing my experience in six weeks of communication class. Generally, it was a great journey and without a doubt, I have enriched experience testing my ability and my inner strength.

On Friday September 11, 2015 I worked Post 28 with Officer Christina Nichols. I noticed Officer Nichols was in a bad mood when she arrived at 5:00am. When I asked Christina a post related question at approximately 5:15am she informed me to leave her alone. Despite her asking for silence she started speaking to me roughly 20 minutes later. I found out at 7:10am that I would have to stay until 11:00am because my relief called off. I told Officer Nichols this and she said, “That’s too bad.” At approximately
At present, the assessment I use to analyze and enhance my communication skills was taking a public speaking class. “The objective of this paper is to understand the key aspects of good and effective communication, how to develop them, and the major challenges faced in the process” (Radhaswamy & Zia, 2011, pg. 1). Public speaking was my weakness. Public speaking helped me to overcome my fear. In order, to be an expert communicator, I had to learn the oral process from "sender" through to "receiver"
To reflect on the process of making a video to show our interpretation of non-verbal communication, it is a necessity to look back on the unfolding of the overall experience from the formation of the scenario to the final presentation. When we first tried to write the scenario, the topic of this EAP class, “intercultural communication”, led us to think about how the non-verbal communications functioned in life especially in an intercultural setting. Anna believed that fighting and conflict with obvious

In this reflection includes my comprehension of the concepts included in the statement, my experience to clarify it. In the interaction with westerners, Face-saving/ Face- threatening related to Association Rights is not the most a matter of concern to Vietnamese, but their most fear is threats to interpersonal harmony, as well as Cheng & Starosta (2005) point out “Human communication is a holistic system by which people develop and maintain harmonious relationships in a continuous transforming
