NaZa NaZa: A Classroom Adaptation
of a Cross-Cultural Training Session

by Tim Newfields

In what ways can students preparing for overseas study learn basic cross-cultural communication skills to enable them to interact successfully in unfamiliar environments? This paper explores how one well known cross-cultural training simulation was adapted for Japanese junior college students. Problems of cross cultural simulations in general and hints about adapting them to EFL contexts are discussed.

Keywords: cross-cultural simulations, multicultural training, intercultural awareness activities, discovery learning, experiential learning.
