Worldwide interest in intercultural communication grows out of two assumptions. First, we live in an age when changes in technology, travel, economic and political systems, immigration patterns, and population density have created a world in which we increasingly interact with people from different cultures. Second, we are more and more aware that culture affects communication in both subtle and profound ways. Your cultural background and experiences help determine how the world looks to you and how you interact in that world.
