ESP Cross-Cultural Communication I

In this course students explore the history of Chicago and its culture through planned excursions and discussion of cultural expectations.

Rich discussions of cultural differences create a forum to reflect on experiences and understand Chicago subcultures. (e.g. sports, food, art, and architecture). Students improve skills for navigating through social and academic interactions through exposure to idiomatic and culture specific references. Excursions to Chicago cultural events and locations will be a part of the course.
