Transcript of Webinar presentation: Using documentary film interactively in intercultural communication training
by John Twitchin, Director, Centre for Intercultural Development (CI-CD)
The film festival scheduled a webinar by John Twitchin: an interactive presentation of extracts from broadcast training documentaries on intercultural communication which show intercultural exchanges and misunderstandings at work both in the West and in Asia. They are widely used by university teachers of languages and linguistics, by cultural trainers of managers preparing for working internationally, and by HR trainers of 'front-line' public services to meet needs of ethnically and culturally diverse minorities. For those who are veterans in the training and consultancy business it is nicety know that John was director of the famous BBC film CrossTalks.
Due to technical problems we could not hold the webinar in Tallinn, but John decided to share the transcript of his webinar with us.
