CLIC: Inter-Communication: "Everybody speaks English, right?"

Wed 10 May 2023


For a long time, it was assumed that the responsibility of functioning well in an English-speaking environment lies solely with non-native speakers. However, it's now widely recognised that it's a shared responsibility, and English-speaking individuals (both native and proficient speakers of English) can play a significant role by being more inclusive.

In this session, you will find out what it takes to become a better communicator by exploring the concept of accent bias and discovering strategies to overcome it. You will also gain greater cultural awareness of the differences between direct and indirect communication styles, as well as practical tips and techniques to enhance your effectiveness in an international context.

This workshop will be delivered in a hybrid format. Feel free to join online or in person.

If you join in person a sandwich lunch will be provided. Please let us know if you're attending in person and any dietary requirements by 3rd May.
