Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review This is an exceptionally versatile textbook. It is easily accessible for students, covering a wide range of areas of and approaches to intercultural communication. The articulated focus on discourse and various areas related to language study (such as intercultural pragmatics) make this book stand out from similar texts. With highly relevant case studies and thought-provoking tasks, this is a key resource to equip undergraduates with a global mindset and those all-important people skills necessary in today's workplaces. -- Erika Darics
