Time and Punctuality Around the World
Students view a world map and click on a country or continent to read about how the people there view time. A brief quiz concludes the activity.
Learners examine how language can interfere with clear communication. They select examples of ambiguity, assuring expressions, doublespeak euphemisms, jargon, emotive content, false implications, meaningless comparisons, and vagueness. In an interactive exercise, learners identify ways to overcome these barriers.
