With the rapid development of the economy, the development of enterprises has already shown a pattern of diversified development. More and more enterprises have gone abroad, and many foreign-funded enterprises have come to China for development. All these have brought a lot of opportunities for economic development at home and abroad. According to the course materials, I notice that the necessity of corporate intercultural adaptation. Intercultural communication is the study and practice of communication across cultural contexts (Bennet). Intercultural communication is a way to deal with relations among individuals from these gatherings that focus on the acknowledgment and regard of social contrasts, looks for the objective of common adjustment prompting biculturalism as opposed to straightforward osmosis, and supports the improvement of intercultural affectability with respect to people and associations to empower empathic understanding and equipped coordination of activity across social contrasts (Bennet). Based on the presentations and case analysis, adapting intercultural is the process of positive change in order to adapt to a new culture. This process can involve changing someone’s beliefs and attitudes, knowledge, and skills. In cross-border trade, companies come into contact with people with different cultural backgrounds. These people often use different languages and have different customs and styles. These differences often lead to trouble. The external cultural features include language and eating habits, while the internal cultural features include beliefs, attitudes, and values. Successful acculturation includes adhering to the original values, customs, and beliefs while actively respecting the new culture and treating the two cultures fairly and unbiased.

All in all, what I learned from course, presentation and case analysis is, business leaders should recognize the cultural differences in foreign trade, attach importance to the cultivation of employees’ intercultural adaptability and the improvement of their intercultural communication skills. Due to the acceleration of globalization, the cross-cultural adaptability of an enterprise is particularly important for its development, the organizations and companies should identify cultural differences and develop cultural identity.

Thanks to technology and travel, it is easier than ever to communicate with people in different parts of the world. So, intercultural communication is becoming more necessary for solving problems and achieving success, particularly in business. “Lack of knowledge of another culture can lead, at the best, to embarrassing or amusing mistakes in communication,” according to DiploFoundation (n.d.), a nonprofit organization. “At the worst, such mistakes may confuse or even offend the people we wish to communicate with, making the conclusion of business deals or international agreements difficult or impossible.” Understanding how people of different cultures communicate can help create a space for meaningful interaction and engagement.

Intercultural communication is more than the mere exchange of words. It includes systems of beliefs, values, and worldviews. Intercultural communication also involves nonverbal aspects of communication, which in some cultures can have a significant impact.

Cultural values impact how people think, act, and judge others. “Cultural meanings render some behaviors as normal and right and others strange or wrong,” Forbes contributor Carol Kinsey Goman (2011) says. “Every culture has rules that its members take for granted. Few of us are aware of our own biases because cultural imprinting is begun at a very early age. And while some of the culture’s knowledge, rules, beliefs, values, phobias, and anxieties are taught explicitly, most is absorbed subconsciously.” People must be aware of these factors to engage in effective intercultural communication.

Based on the peer presentations, course materials, and other resources, the most impressive one is Hofstede’s six cultural dimensions. I believe that Hofstede’s six dimensions of culture provide an easy way of comparing and contrasting different nations. The ability to compare a nation that you may know little to nothing about to your own with a concrete set of values opens the doorway to knowledge and more importantly an understanding of other cultures.
