Conversing Politely Across Cultures: Directness vs. Indirectness

Tuesday, February 16, 2021

7:30 PM-8:30 PM

What kinds of language and vocabulary are involved in being polite when speaking English? What is direct and indirect and how does that affect how listeners view your messages?

Join other international students and Drexel students in an interactive workshop followed by small group discussions with Drexel medical students. Practice politeness strategies with others from different cultural and language backgrounds.
