TES 517 Cross-cultural Communication Final


Part#1Congratulations!  
You have been asked to
give a speech at the BUFS graduation ceremony* on the following topic“Developing cross-cultural literacy and building a culturally harmonious society’’
What will you say?  
Please post the text of your speech (at least 600 words) on your blog or email it to pufslebow@gmail.com by June 16 (no hwp files, please).
It might be useful to include components of topics we’ve covered during this course, but try not to simply regurgitate a list of main points.  Rather, based on your learning and wisdom, what do you really think is most helpful and meaningful for your audience to hear.
* If you would prefer to deliver this speech at a different venue (e.g. in front of the National Assembly
(국회), at the United Nations, at a school assembly) that’s fine.  Please indicate the venue when posting.

Congratulations one more time!
You will be a
featured guest on the CCC Show on June 21.

Feel free to prepare some thoughts beforehand, but please do not memorize or read your answers.
