GREAT Resource on Cultural Intelligence

Hey- for those of you who find my culture differences posts fascinating, the best source I’ve had (besides talking to local people) is David Livermore’s
Customs of the World: Using Cultural Intelligence to Adapt, Wherever You Are. It’s one of the Great Courses offerings and right now you can get it for 50% off the SALE price.

Use the code T89K to get the video download for about 17 dollars or just the audio (which is what I’ve had) for about 12.dollars!

Only good until Sunday night!

This is not an affiliate link. I just know many of you will love it.

There are 24 lectures, each around half an hour long. If you have a high school student, this is a good solid credit to give for a World Cultures course- provided you make sure your student does some outside reading and writing at the high school level, and if at all possible, finds a way to visit with somebody from another culture and ask some questions and write about that as well. Or find some people who have lived in other cultures and ask them about their experiences- what was hard, what was funny, what mistakes did they make, what do they wish they had known?
Additional reading in the news about issues around assimilation would not be amiss, either.

    Shucks, I missed it! Maybe it’ll be on sale again sometime.

    Thanks for recommending this resource. Even though I missed the sale, I looked it up at my local library and found that they have the DVD series ordered. Yay!
