This course will deal with differences between nations and cultures, and the ways in which these differences impact on the delivery of tourism services and programs to an international client base. The course is aimed at increasing participants' awareness of and sensitivity toward their own and other cultures and in increasing knowledge and skills competence in cross-cultural settings as they relate to tourism. Through the presentation of information on communication theory and culture in general the link is made to cross-cultural communication, first in a global way, then to specific countries.
